Bug in type -a


I've found a strange bug in Cygwin. See:

$ PATH=/bin:/lib:/cygdrive/c/WINNT
$ type regedit
regedit is /cygdrive/c/WINNT/regedit
$ type -a regedit
bash: type: regedit: not found

I think that "type -a" should give the same result as "type" in this case.

I've found that this happens only when Cygwin runs on Windows 2000,
(Windows 2000 Professional Ver 5.0 Build 2195 Service Pack 2)
but never when Cygwin runs on Windows NT (WinNT Ver 4.0 build 1381 Service
Pack 5).
It happens not only with regedit, but with every exe that resides in
I've tested various versions of cygwin1.dll  and bash, including the newest
that I've found:
(cygwin1.dll 1.3.12(0.54/3/2) 2002-07-06 02:16 i686 unknown  and   bash
2.05b.0(2)-release (i686-pc-cygwin))
and the bug occured in every version that I've tested.
The oldest versions that I've tested were cygwin1.dll 1.3.5(0.47/3/2)  and
bash 2.05.0(8)-release
