BUG: cp not adding .exe in all cases

In a temporary directory, I ran:

cp /bin/{make,bash,sh,sed,gawk,cp,mv,cygwin1.dll} .

Everything worked correctly apart from sed, which was copied to 'sed' (with no extension)
I removed sed, and tryed again, copying only sed:

cp /bin/sed .

Same problem.

cp /bin/sed.exe .

Worked fine.

Strange problem!

The rest of CygWin is working wonderfully, though - thanks for the great product!
