redirecting password entry

I apologize in advance if this is off topic. I was
wondering if maybe this is a general problem Cygwin,
passwords, and inline scripts, or if this was specific
to Cygwin and Sybase.
I'm trying to use Sybase's isql by doing the
isql -S server -U user <<EOF
where $password holds the password and $command holds
the command to be executed.
Under Cygwin (with various settings of tty) isql still
prompts for a password. If I use the -P option to
isql and leave the rest of the inline script alone,
isql works fine.
Under Solaris isql works fine.
Am I missing something?
