"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.
See also <http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2004-06/msg01235.html> if you have
no way to get rid of any create "con" file.
