Other threads [1] from people who have taken this course have shown that
the windows update-on-reboot doesn't always work, in which case you
might still be running cygwin 1.7.9 inadvertently (and coreutils 8.15
requires cygwin 1.7.10 for things like ls to work).  What does 'uname
-a' say; and if it is still 1.7.9, then you need to either rename
/bin/ to cygwin1.dll, or rerun setup.exe and reinstall
cygwin1.dll, but either way, make sure that this time you really have
stopped all cygwin processes first.
