[2.63] - problem parsing generated configure or config.status

I have problem w/ newest autoconf-2.63 generated files.
This is how it looks in case of git- (recently they moved from
2.61 to 2.63):
configure: creating ./config.status
./config.status: line 666: syntax error near unexpected token `;'
./config.status: line 666: `   { (exit 1); exit 1; }; };;'

line 666:    { (exit 1); exit 1; }; };;

At first moment I though that IF I upgrade the bash
it might help but unfortunely not.
This is reproducable, If I touch any autoconf-2.63 generated
configure, bash dies in one place or another.
Files from autoconf-2.61 works just fine.

I am aware that it might be cygwin specific problem.
For example, under linux (same bash-2.05b) everything works just fine.
I not able to compile autoconf myself for that platform due
to lack of perl support (just miniperl, no perl modules or libs).
But still, I have hope that I found a soul who will want to fix that mystery.


PS: I can provide more details if I will be able to.

My configuration:

% uname -sr
CYGWIN_NT-5.0 1.3.2(0.39/3/2)
% bash --version
GNU bash, version 2.05.0(6)-release (i686-pc-cygwin)
% ./bash --version
GNU bash, version 2.05b.0(1)-release (i686-pc-cygwin)
% m4 --version
GNU m4 1.4
