Arrrg. Sorry about that. Actually, my original test used a different program
(ssh) that exhibited similar behavior to echo; I was trying to simplify the test
to the bare minimum.

Nope. If I leave CYGWIN unset, and run the Cygwin echo.exe explicitly:
d:\users\antony>c:\cygwin\bin\echo.exe hello |od -c
0000000000 h e l l o \r \n
