cygwin pdksh hanging after a few commands

I am having problems with ksh hanging after running a few commands.  I have
kill -9 the shell.

The following command can make it happen every time.

ls -al bogusfile

I get the following message

ls: bogusfile: no such file or directory
and the prompt comes back but if I enter a new command it hangs.

Has anyone else had a similar problem.

I was using pdksh 5.2.13 and decided to see if 5.2.14 would have this
problem and
it also does.

If anyone else has seen this then I will send a bug report to the creators
of pdksh.
