A fix for this has been committed in upstream fossil now, pity that it just
missed fossil 1.30. This brings me to the following:

Latest Cygwin-packaged fossil is version 1.29, while fossil 1.30 came out
3 weeks ago. I could prepare a patch for 1.30, if desired. Since 1.29 has
the same problem, I would like to find a new 1.30 version with this fix
to be available soon.
