Given that date is not a Bash builtin, I don’t know why that’s even on the table.

The Cygwin DLL *is* involved, but a problem in the key function (time(2)) would break an *awful* lot of software, so I can’t see it being the source of the change.

More likely, the change is in newlib or the terminal I/O code.

What do you get from “strace -fq date +%s”?
