I tried a slightly older version of server 2008. I am not sure which
one it is - most likely RC0. And Cygwin works like a charm. I have no
clue what's the big difference between the two.
I tried Version 6.0 (Build 6001: Service Pack 1, v.275) and Cygwin
works. (Probably RC0)
I tried Version 6.0 (Build 6001: Service Pack 1, v.667) and Cygwin fails. (RC1)
I also think it is a bug that will hopefully go away soon. Hope this
is useful to others.
