I noticed this occurs after the commit:

Cygwin: pty, console: Fix handle leak which occurs on exec() error.
- This patch fixes the handle leak which occurs when exec() fails
with an error. The duplicated handles will be closed when the
exec'ed process is terminated. However, if exec() fails, the code
path does not reach to the code closing the duplicated handles.
To implement this fix more appropriately, the setup, cleanup and
closing pty codes which was previously located in spawn.cc are
encapsulated into the fhandler_pty_slave class functions.
Now, I am looking into this problem. Please wait a while.
