Sorry, but this is the wrong list.  Reread cygwin.com, which states:

The Cygwin DLL works with all non-beta, non "release candidate",
ix86 32 bit versions of Windows since Windows 95, with the exception
of Windows CE.

Windows Vista is only a release candidate, so cygwin does not
support it, therefore, running bash under cygwin on Vista is
unsupported, and you are on your own.  The bug is not in bash,
however, but in the fact that the cygwin1.dll (which the cygwin
version of bash depends on) has not yet been ported to that

At any rate, the cygwin mailing list is a better place to ask these
sorts of questions.
