your cygwin dll is 1.7.7 while last one is 1.7.9,
so your update did not work.
If I type just 'ls', not output. Same for 'ls bin' when I know that
folder has stuff in. 'ls bin[tab][tab]' shows the files as expected:

How are you running the shell and which is ?

what is the output of "ls -la ." ?
Attached is cygcheck output run from a bash prompt, it moaned a little when run:
tchiverton@EV34:~$ cygcheck -s -v -r> /cygdrive/c/cygcheck.txt
garbled output from 'id' command - no uid= found

On the cygcheck output, after the PATH and before
you should have something like
Output from C:\cygwin\bin\id.exe
UID: 1008(marco) GID: 513(None)
513(None) 0(root) 544(Administrators) 545(Users)
