I tried a just to copy patch.exe. Then I saw this that I just wish I did 
not. Here is a copy and paste from my screen output (a bit truncated):

patch 2.5.8
/cygdrive/d/dl/gnu > patch.exe --version
patch 2.5.9

After a while it reported 2.5.9. I am not sure about the reason. I 
started another copy of Cygwin in another window. I also changed PATH, 
but I am not sure in which order now.

I am starting Cygwin in a cmd.ex console window.

Is this behaviour known? Should it be like this? Or is there perhaps 
something wrong with my pc?
