Re: launching sh/bash from windows console (cmd) results in application Segmentation Faults

Do you have the same problem with Cygwin 32 bits?  How about with
the current Cygwin package (1.7.28) with either 32 bits or 64?
I had no problem running this on 32-bits from W7 x64 with 1.7.28.


I still have the same problem when updating to cygwin64 to 1.7.28:
CYGWIN_NT-6.1 1.7.28(0.271/5/3) 2014-02-09 21:06 x86_64 Cygwin

I just installed cygwin32 and it works as expected (I have not seen
any problems yet)
CYGWIN_NT-6.1-WOW64 1.7.28(0.271/5/3) 2014-02-09 21:06 i686 Cygwin

I am not sure if the is relevant but the "C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe"
I have been using is a 32 bit executable as reported by cygwin:
$ file cmd.exe
cmd.exe: PE32 executable (console) Intel 80386, for MS Windows

I am not sure if this is an alternative and I don't have any
alternatives other than "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\cmd.exe" which is also
reported as 32 bit.

Any ideas or suggestions?
