cannot execute binary file

    /usr/bin/ls: /usr/bin/ls: cannot execute binary file
    /bin/bash: Exit 126

This is the error that greets me when I try to execute a command in cygwin from a Windows Command Prompt like so:

    C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe -h always /bin/bash -l ls

This was after installing a new version of Cygwin today.  So I wiped it and installed it again and got the same error again.

This used to work because I've called my own scripts this way before.  Is there some new way of doing this?
