I am seeing an mcrypt problem with short plaintext strings. 
I don't have a Linux box to compare results, so I don't 
know if this is an upstream or a Cygwin issue.

$ mcrypt --version
Mcrypt v.2.6.8 (i686-pc-cygwin)
Linked against libmcrypt v.2.5.8

Longer strings seem to work:

$ echo abcdef | mcrypt -q -k xyz | mcrypt -dq -k xyz
abcdef
$ 

But shorter ones not so much:

$ echo abcde | mcrypt -q -k xyz | mcrypt -dq -k xyz
ab▒$
