%CD% indeed doesn't work on NT4, and there is a test for that already IIRC.
You can circumvent that with @pwd@ (starting path) [just using "cd" is
equivalent to "echo %cd%" and works everywhere]
An interesting test would be to use stuff like C:foo or Z:\foo for
regressions (or more portably @drive@)

Also don"t put stuff like "ECHO is off" in expected file, that's not
portable on non-English locales

You can use quotes, like e.g. echo 'whatever'
