Uggh.  This sounds familiar to another bash bug that I investigated some
time ago, where bash was abusing longjmp() and miscompiled under -O2 but
compiled correctly at -O0 due to the undefined behavior from that abuse,
but I just verified that my patch from back then is still present in my
latest build of bash for cygwin.  I'll have to find more time to look
into this.
