Sounds buggy to me. Also sounds like a Windows problem, or possibly a
cygwin problem. To narrow it down, you could try running those
commands in the native Windows command-line client instead of the
cygwin client. You could also try the same commands on a non-Windows
(e.g. Linux, Mac OS X, etc.) machine, but I'm pretty sure the problem
won't occur there.
