I've encountered similar issues with other things in Cygwin. The fact
that it is a rolling release means that there is no such thing as a
stable release. I've been using Cygwin for at least 20 years and I've
learned that once I get a setup that seems to be stable, I do not
upgrade anything unless there is a very pressing reason to do so.

This is a pain in the butt, but it is what it is. I still find that
Cygwin is better suited than WSL for my primary needs of writing
scripts and filters to make my life in Windows easier.
