This is a known cygwin problem, caused by the fact that cygwin tcl is not cygwin-aware, which makes cygwin have a tough time knowinghow to manage controlling ttys across a parent and grandchild process with a non-cygwin process in the middle:

Bash may yet have a bug where it over-reacts to a failed tty ioctl, by exiting instead of reporting the problem, but if that turns out to be the case, I will follow up here with more details.
