Please run the following from a bash prompt:
1) "which ci" and "type -a ci", and paste the output of both in your
2) "cygcheck -svr > cygcheck.txt", and include cygcheck.txt as an
uncompressed text attachment, as Elfyn recommended
3) "strace -o ci.strace -w ci foo.txt &", wait until ci hangs (you'll see
its output in a separate window), and look at the end of ci.strace for
clues. You may be asked to post it (compressed) later (it might be a
good idea to paste the output of "wc /tmp/ci.strace", and, maybe,
"tail -10 ci.strace" before ci is killed, into your message, though).
By the way, it's only worth doing steps 2 and 3 if step 1 shows something
like "/bin/ci" or "/usr/bin/ci" as the first entry in both cases. If
you get any other result, you're most likely not running the Cygwin RCS,
so this would be off-topic anyway.
