This is very odd indeed, and I wonder why gcc/cpp is producing the 
`invalid argument' error!

Please provide a bit more info on your platform:
  $ echo "g++ -I./ -c hello.cpp" > bug.txt
  $ g++ -I./ -c -v -H hello.cpp >> bug.txt 2>&1
  $ cygcheck -s -r >> bug.txt 2>&1

and post the resulting bug.txt file.
