I see the following differences:
- You have 1.7.9 while I have 1.7.8 and 1.7.7.
- You have XP while I have 64 bit Windows 7.
As I don't see any mention of such bug being fixed in 1.7.9 change log I
suppose the really important difference is between the OS versions and/or
32 vs 64 bits. I'll try to install Cygwin into XP and 32 bit Windows 7 to
check this too if nobody else posts the test results for these platforms
