name-based commands aren't working....arg0='pipefail'??

Any command I'm running -- and this is on a WinXP(sp3)-32 version of cygwin.

I first noticed this when I tried to run 'grep'...keeps giving me the
usage message.

so I ran:

     /bin/echo "$@" -i pattern pathname

What I saw:

     pipefile -i pattern pathname

Um?.... why is my arg0==pipefail?

But maybe more importantly how can I get the command name  there
