Have you changed your {/etc/,~/.}profile, ~/.bash{_profile,rc}
Your output looks to be from uname -a, so something must be running it.
Try running bash from mintty and/or cmd and see what happens.
You could also try running bash -il --noprofile --norc.
If all else fails, try using dash, and test bash -nvx {/etc/,~/.}profile
and ~/.bash{_profile,rc}, then just -vx to see if something is borked.
Can you check the PATH set within bash?

Also may want to check recent changes in readline, in case they affect
how {/etc/,~/.}inputrc settings are used.

Do you have Ubuntu|Bash for Windows using the same home dir and could
that have replaced something used by tcc or bash?

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
