This seems to be the same problem reported by Yaakov last year; see the 
long thread starting at 
http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-developers/2013-04/msg00055.html and 
continuing into May and June.  Corinna announced a fix in 
http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-apps/2013-06/msg00057.html; is it possible 
that the fix didn't make it into the latest binutils?
