Why didn't you say so in the first place?  If this behavior only occurs on
cygwin, then it is a bug in either cygwin or the bash port of cygwin, and
you should have reported it to the cygwin mailing list, rather than
forcing upstream to come up with the workaround.  At any rate, since I
maintain the cygwin port of bash, I'll look into it; I can certainly
reproduce it, so it looks like there is a problem with file redirection on
builtins inside command substitution on cygwin.

$ pwd
/home/eblake/bash
$ command cd bash
/home/eblake/bash
$ command cd bash 2>/dev/null 1>&2
$ echo $(command cd bash 2>/dev/null 1>&2)
/home/eblake/bash
$
