I can reproduce it; some more details:

- 'cygcheck /bin/ash.exe -v' returns 127
- it doesn't happen if run from cmd.exe
- '/bin/ash.exe -v' from inside bash works just fine

Isn't there a feature of Cygwin where it tries 5 or 6 times to restart
Windows apps (such as cygcheck) if they fail in a certain way? That
could explain the repeated output (i.e. cygcheck is trying to do the
documented 'cygcheck [PROGRAM] -v' thing but there's a bug), but my
search fu wasn't able to bring up any results.
