Actually no, though the difference doesn't matter - but for the safe
side, here are the gory details:
In a cmd.exe Command window (or, to be more precise, in a command window
hosted by the Console2 console), I use the command
cmd /c c:\cygwin64\bin\zsh -l
to start an interactive zsh Shell, and from *this*, I start a Ruby
program, and from *this*, a mintty is started in the background.
But I can see the effect simpler in this way: Just open a DOS Command
Window, and in the command line type
c:\cygwin64\bin\zsh -c /usr/bin/mintty
and the error can be reproduced. BTW, same effect with bash instead of
