bash.exe.stackdump generated using cygwin 1.7.15

'm experiencing this issue when I run this simple testcase:

just run the command 

c:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe --login -c "/bin/mkpasswd -l > /etc/passwd"

it produces: 


looked for bash.exe.stackdump

here is the cygcheck.out producted by
cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck.out 

The problem does not occur if:
1) I run mkpasswd from inside a cygwin
2) if I run c:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe --login -c "/bin/mkpasswd -l > 
  using a cygwin 1.5.e

I recreated the problem in 2 different xp boxes.  But it was also 
recreated in a Windows 7 and a Windows 2008 R2.

As the temporary workaround  looks to be only to install 1.5 through 
setup-legacy.exe I would strongly 
recomned you don't remove the 1.5 from cygwin site until you don't find a 
solution for 1.7. 

Thanks in advance for your help.
I'm available to run any debug module in the environment where the failure
