Someone, somewhere, has done

echo crap > /dev/nul

instead of the intended

echo crap > /dev/null

If the /dev/nul file is still around it should be possible to
examine it and possible identify the culprit.

It might be some script in Cygwin, but I'm going to go out on a limb
and suggest that it is more probable that it is an end-user typo.

Cheers,
Peter
