I found out the cause of the bug and fixed the bug in svn. The issue
was with batch files that do not end in CRLF but just terminate
without EOL (my own ones all have EOL at EOF). So that's a workaround.

I could not find P5.BAT in metados. Also I could not reproduce the
"cls" issue. When I used the watcom version in metados (ie. replacing
a:\system\command.com) before the bugfix it behaved the same way as
the Turbo and GCC version, that is, hang, so there was no way I could
even type cls.
