I ran into a problem after installing updates. I removed cygwin and
reinstalled and now have a fresh installation of 1.5.11-1 using
setup.exe 2.427.

I tried the following command in bash:

tidy contrib.html > con.html

Which gave the following error:

479975353 [main] bash 4024 fhandler_base::dup: dup(/home/Matthew
Moss/con.html) failed, handle 2F, Win32 error 87
bash: con.html: Invalid argument

"con" is a reserved word on Windows.  Cygwin 1.5.10 erroneously let you
produce a filename named "con" but 1.5.11 no longer allows this.

This error message should not occur and that should be fixed but fixing
things to provide a more unix-like error message is, unfortunately, not
going to solve your problem.
