> The cygwin version of the C-shell is called 'tcsh'. You perhaps have some kind of bogus shell script in /usr/bin that's pretending to be csh and is attempting to translate and forward the command line args to the real tcsh and is getting confused?
I know I'm going out on a limb here, but could the csh in /usr/bin be the
one created by the tcsh postinstall script? :)
Try deleting /usr/bin/csh.exe.lnk and re-running
