Your query got me interested in looking and I believe that winpty needs
to be at the front of all the commands so that it can communicate with
mintty properly.  To overcome the need to remember you could add an
alias to execute the command; `alias FOO="winpty FOO"'.

Sigh. What a mess. I can't get this to work.  It was easy enough when a
single script has to execute "kubectl", having "winpty" prefix that call,
but I'm trying to write a script that calls that other script, and even in
a pipeline.

If I have "winpty" prefix the call to the script that calls "kubectl", it

     winpty: error: cannot start '...': Not found in PATH

When I changed it so it references the absolute path, it then says "%1 is
not a valid Win32 application. (error 0xc1)".  So, this makes it clear that
winpty can only directly execute Windows applications, which makes sense.

So how can I call a Windows application from more than just the top-level

What does cygcheck say about your winpty? You are using the Cygwin compiled version, correct?
