I see something similar intermittently but only when I try to clone in
a non-Administrator shell and that too only on cygwin32. It doesn't
happen when I'm in an administrator shell. Haven't been able to figure
it out - although I'm having other problems where I can't run many
commands from a 32bit Cygwin shell - so I don't want to set you off on
a random thread. Are you able to do things like man, make etc. from
the same shell?
Did you try these (man, make etc.) from a non-admin shell?
I think you're talking to the other guy however when I did man, make, etc. they worked fine.
Interesting. Running an administrator shell works! The odd thing is that I
logged in as the user Administrator, the local user Administrator. I assume
it has administrator rights but I know that there are administrator rights
and then there are administrator rights. So it seems the problem lies
between the two. How to debug this further and fix it?
Another error that I'm getting is the following:

$ git fetch
Warning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11 forwarding.
X11 forwarding request failed on channel 0
fatal: Out of memory? mmap failed: Resource temporarily unavailable

Note that this happens whether or not I start an administrator shell. Also
Could you do the following and report back:
- open windows explorer and navigate to C:\Cygwin\bin (or where ever
the root of your 32 bit Cygwin installation).
Stop. AFAICT I don't have a 32 bit Cygwin installation. I have a 64 bit Cygwin installation. Again, I think you're talking to the other guy. However I did report this new problem with git fetch and the nmap failed.
- scroll down to find sh.exe and check whether you see the windows
'Administrator' shield on it?

If it has a shield on it, that is the source of all problems.
I'll look for this however.
