ash is another name for dash, which is described here:


The short answer is that it's a minimal shell that you need to use in
your case for running the rebaseall command so that there aren't any
DLLs locked by other Cygwin processes.  BTW, make sure that you exit all
Cygwin processes except for ash before you start rebaseall.
