The first command does *nothing* to the content of the clipboard. The
2nd command does what I expected the first command to do.
And is this a regression?
Not really. I only recently started using /dev/clipboard.

I was running this all from bash. Isn't it bash that sets up the it's
i/o handles before forking the sub-process? So, theoretically, couldn't
cygwin do something special if it is launching a non-cygwin app with
cygwin-specific devices as it's i/o handles?
