Sorry for the late reply on this, it appears that somehow the files are
in dos/windows format and not unix/linux format. Thus the shell is
seeing the incorrect lineendings and is misinterpeting them. I just
tried here and it gives me the same as what you got above.

Looks like I need to run all the files through dos2unix.
