I suspect `cygwin1.dll`'s `strtod ()` etc.
Here's a code.

```
/* gcc foobar.c */

#include <math.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int main (void)
{
  printf ("strtod (\"nan\", NULL) = %f\n", strtod ("nan", NULL));
  printf ("strtod (\"-nan\", NULL) = %f\n", strtod ("-nan", NULL));
  printf ("nan (\"\") = %f\n", nan (""));

  return 0;
}
```

Cygwin 2.10.0 64 bit with gcc 7.3.0
```
strtod ("nan", NULL) = -nan
strtod ("-nan", NULL) = nan
nan ("") = nan
```

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64 bit with gcc 5.4.0
```
strtod ("nan", NULL) = nan
strtod ("-nan", NULL) = nan
nan ("") = nan
```
