At first I assumed this was the ongoing ReadLine problem:

in which case I would ask you to see if the problem persists with Dash, or if it
is exclusive to Bash. However I am not able to repro your issue. I tried it in
pristine Windows 7 virtual machine with:

- Cygwin desktop shortcut
- Cygwin.bat
- Directory\Background\shell reg key

However, even though I cannot repro this, it still seems like a ReadLine issue,
as it seems too similar to a similar problem I am having to be a coincidence:
