Then I would argue that strip should be a no-op and leave the size of
cygwin1.dll unchanged, rather than stripping out whatever was essential
that made the dll invalid. It is not a bug in your philosophy of shipping
cygwin1.dll already stripped, but it IS annoying that binutils can't
recognize that fact and instead corrupts the file.
