According to Larry Hall (Cygwin) on 9/26/2007 4:05 PM:
$ ll /bin/sh
lrwxrwxrwx 1 illenseer None 8 Nov 10  2006 /bin/sh -> bash.exe

Ah. Well that is wrong. '/bin/sh' should be a copy of '/bin/bash'. I'd still recommend reinstalling the bash package to see if that creates the proper '/bin/sh'.

A symlink is okay if you only ever invoke /bin/sh via cygwin apps; it only breaks when trying to call sh from native Windows apps, since they don't follow symlinks.

I know.  I'm being pedantic but unless the OP has a firm reason for wanting
a link here, I still like to point folks to the path of greatest Cygwin
bliss. ;-)
