No mystery, but...

To get the error description you do:

$ net helpmsg 127

The specified procedure could not be found.

That usually means the program, a2ps, can't find one or more of the
dynamic libraries it needs.

To find what libraries are missing use: cygcheck `which a2ps`

Instead of strace, another tool would be better in this case, its not
from Cysgwin but from Microsoft, it's SysInternals depends.  It will
tell you the same as the cygcheck.
