Sorry, I forgot the user I log in as is switching to cmd.exe.
This doesn't happen in sh or tcsh, so it is probably a non-issue.

* is a legal character for ls but perhaps not cygpath? I don't know.
No files or directories are using * in the name.
Not sure about incorrect terminal settings as I never touched any.
It shows up in mintty and ssh equally. The characters that appear vary.
Some non-existent paths do *not* produce the gibberish.

Looks more like private character space combined with incorrect terminal setup.
