This results in a very interesting regression for me. Running zsh in
login mode with zsh --login fails and turns out that it hangs at

/etc/zprofile line 56 which basically says:

USER="$(/usr/bin/id -un)"

I tried running the same command under zsh (without login mode) and
fair enough it works fine, so I went ahead and commented that line and
it now hangs at line 145:


and well it seems that running any subcommand inside a zsh script
seems to hang. I confirmed this with a script of mine which hung at a
"cat" command.

Reverting back to cygwin1-20160330.dll did fix the issue for me. This
is on Win7 x64.
