It is likely that you have tripped over a Cygwin bash problem where the
latest version expects *nix line endings.

Check your bash version by using "bash --version".  AFAIK 3.1.17 or
earlier are OK.  If you have a later version I think you can downgrade
using the Cygwin setup app.

As it seems unlikely that the Cygwin folks are going to revert the
change I think we should do something about this issue, e.g. passing the
"-O igncr" option to bash.
