Looks like a version mismatch between Cygwin and less.. did you install with
Setup and did you *not* use the experimental version of less with the current
version of Cygwin? 

hmm.. I vaguely remember seeing a cygcheck output here somewhere..

Yup - your cygcheck output says you're using bersion 381-1 of less - if that 
is right, you have a cygwin-version mismatch: less 381-1 is for cygwin 1.5.x
which is not compatible with cygwin-1.3.x. Re-fetch less with Setup and try

Setup != rpm
Cygwin != Linux

You used Setup to install, didn't you?
Use cygcheck to get the version of less, then :)
