I know very little about emacs (I'm not a user) but this response looks
very much like what you'd see if Windows tried to execute one of Cygwin's
(old-style) symlinks.  Unforttunately, I can't tell you which one though
I can say it's not 'man' (or shouldn't be in a normally installed
configuration.)  If you require further assistance from this list, I'd
recommend reviewing the problem report requirements found here:
