Error: "-gThe system cannot find the file specified." When bash script containing "cut" is run from cmd

Simple Bash script:

> #!/bin/bash
>
> cut

Save as "testme.sh" in C:\ or elsewhere.

Open a Windows command prompt and type:

> cmd /c bash -c /c/testme.sh

I get the following error:

> -gThe system cannot find the file specified.

This only seems to trigger when bash is running as a child process of cmd.
