Yikes! I have no idea what may be causing this! I'm travelling until
Sunday and have no way to checking/fixing, but will do as soon as I

When you added/removed the CYGWIN values (binmode, tty, etc), did you
restart bash? All this should work irrespective of mount types, so even 
if it does, there's still a nasty bug in there somewhere. And it should
also work correctly from CMD shell. 

And I was hoping that this was going to be the best tested release yet. 
Sigh. This is also the first released built natively, so I'll try my
usual canadian-cross build and see if that solves your problem or not.
