Eureka! I checked the cygcheck output and noticed that my cygwin dll was old even though "setup" thought I was up to date. Maybe a previous cygwin update failed to complete properly? I reinstalled the base cygwin package using setup and now it is all working fine.
I guess the current bash doesn't jive with cygwin 1.5.19(0.150/4/2) 2006-01-16 15:01 i686 Cygwin,

Weird. Let's have a look at your cygcheck -svr output then (as an
attachment, please). Hold back on the strace logs just for now, though!
