The cygwin-specific `--append-exe' option (announced here [1]) is 
ineffective for stat command (it works fine for ls).

Here is a simple test case to reproduce the problem.

This command should print "bash.exe":
     $ (cd /bin && /usr/bin/stat -t --append-exe bash | cut -d ' ' -f 1)

The same option works fine with the ls command :
     $ (cd /bin && /usr/bin/ls --append-exe bash)

     $ /usr/bin/stat --version
     stat (GNU coreutils) 8.10
