To close the loop, since this has also been discussed on the Git mailing
list: yes, ankostis was attempting to use Cygwin Git with Windows
Python.  As far as I'm concerned, this isn't a supported scenario; if it
worked with Git v2.8.3-1, that was coincidence rather than by design.

As such, I'm not going to investigate this further.  I am willing to
spend a little time helping others investigate, however, and I'm willing
to apply patches to the Cygwin Git builds to resolve/remove this sort of
problem, provided they've been at least tentatively accepted for future
application to the upstream Git source code.
