coreutils 5.90 is a *test* release.  It is not meant for general use,
and setup never chooses test releases unless you tell it to.  This
coreutils won't even work with the current cygwin 1.5.18, it requires a
recent snapshot.

Are you sure you're even using the Cygwin stty?  What does "type stty"
and "stty --version" report?  On my system stty won't even accept that
syntax, it needs -F (but works fine setting the baud rate otherwise.) 
Since you're using a third party packaged Cygwin then all bets are off
really, and technically you need to ask on their mailing list and not
