I used the latest installer 2.340.2.5 and installed cygwin.
When executing 'ls' in bash I get: ‘bash: ls: command not found’
Also 'df' doesn’t work.
I tried other commands: find, type, grep, etc. They DO work.
I searched for the excutables ‘ls’ and ‘ls.exe’ but they do not exist in
the cygwin tree.
Is ls a shell builtin?

I have experienced that type of problem too: I could not execute
find, even though it was in the path. After my recent upgrade, I had
troubles to execute 'lib' but lib.exe was working: I tracked it to
the existence of a directory named lib in one of the path's.
My offfice mate also has problems calling certain programs, e.g. head
even though it is present in that the path. The problem is a bit
different but has the same level of annoyance: in the case of
head. The 'head' of perl is called even though perl is later in the
path. Calling head.exe works.
Is anyone trying to address this type of issues.
AFAIK, not actively, no.
