This will cause a cygwin1.dll collision between the two versions Nothing is guarantee to work fine

Can you elaborate? Cygwin supports multiple installations just fine these days. Use of a .bat file (an intervening cmd.exe process) should isolate the environments for this test.

Regardless, I was also able to produce a hang in bash running the same .bat file from a cmd.exe prompt using only the snapshot install and the copied bash.exe, false.exe, and dependent binaries - no mintty. The hung bash.exe process eventually timed out with an error message:
