Author of disser package (who provide me with wrong .csf files) said
that he couldn't see similar behaviour in MikTeX,
so I [erroneously] thought it might be something TeXLive-related
(because bibtex8 is included in texlive package).
I am very sorry for inconvenience caused.

This is not very big issue, I can quickly swap CRLF with LF manually
in every 'wrong' style file I am trying to use, but I just thought
that this truly 'mechanical' work may be easily done by appropriate
software tool (bibtex8)...
