I'm afraid, you're using Windows lpr command, rather than Cygwin.
(Yes, Windows DO have lpr command-line utility - it is a part of TCP/IP
installation, thus comes preinstalled on systems starting Windows '98.)
Though, I don't have Cygwin's lpr installed to compare records. Never had the
need for it.
