You didn't read very far. The next message in the thread,
makes it quite obvious that you are not running the cygwin version of
bash. For us to help you further, please follow the instructions, and
attach a text file output of 'cygcheck -svr':

instead of cygwin's bash.
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
