Re: /bin/sh is not really bash? [was: git stash damaged?]

I found a workaround by replacing:

If that change has any effect, that leaves three main possibilities:
1) something broke or otherwise disabled your installed /bin/sh.exe, but
left /bin/bash.exe intact. Someone else here had some unrelated
activity kill cygwin's bash.exe recently...
2) the git-stash script wrongly assumes bash behaves exactly the same
when called as 'sh' and as 'bash'. But bash enters POSIX compatibility
mode in that case, which disables quite a number of GNU extensions.
This might be related to:
That would be case 2) I don't think so, though. The symptoms of that
would be less blunt than "could not execute".
Also, the previous link says that "/bin/sh is really bash", but:
$ /bin/sh --version
That strongly hints you have case 1) happening here.
