Please, do as suggested by Marco Atzeri.

 - stop everything "Cygwin" related, and
 - replace the cygwin1.dll by the one you will find here


Download https://cygwin.com/snapshots/x86_64/cygwin1-20180216.dll.xz and
extract the cygwin1.dll.

As verification of what Marco believes to be the culprit, I "printed" to a file
from Word 2007.

This file proved to be "invisible" for ls (but not to the cmd's dir command).

The Windows Explorer shows that the file has the T attribute ... You may use
properties > details to verify if the same is true for chap4.ps

After replacing the cygwin1.dll with the latest version, the file "reappeared"
again to ls.

Please, report back here (using BOTTOM-posting - as I do here).
