If you are mixing Cygwin and Windows Python or PEX, you will have issues.
It sounds like you are running a Windows console program which does not work on
Cygwin ptys without using an interface like winpty.
What steps did you take with which console and python to install pex and ia?

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
