According to Leutwein Tobias (BEG-PG/EES) on 2/15/2008 8:27 AM:

| Attached is a cygcheck output of a cygwin 1.5.24 installation. With this
version it works.
Please avoid http://cygwin.com/acronyms/#TOFU.
Earlier versions of bash did not install a /dev/stdout symlink, but
special cased it directly in bash. It may be that this has always been
broken on cygwin, but because bash was special-casing things instead of
relying on a symlink, no one noticed. But now that bash installs a
/dev/stdout symlink, it would be nice if cygwin could be patched to match
Linux behavior on reopening /dev/stdout.
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
