First, sorry about the crossposts. The intentions were good, but the idea was bad.
Corinna Vinschen at Red Hat has sent me a fix for the problem. The problem is in ash (which is sh.exe). She will upload the fix to the "cygwin latest" archive.
Note that the cygcheck from the cygwin installation I included in my last mail is an installation I found on an other PC at my office. I do not know anything about that installation (version etc.) except that my script worked there and that the cat.exe from that installation made the script work at the installation on my PC. With the fix from Corinna I could swap back to the "proper" version of cat.exe.
