So, I guess that I should have seen that the Windows 10 Ubuntu bash.exe
is actually written as a 32 bit code (they didn't use the 64-bit code
as on my other true Ubuntu x64 platform?) from the PE32+ info?:

12:08:44pm ingber@lesterX1:/cygdrive/c/Windows/System32# ls -l bash.exe

bash.exe
12:08:48pm ingber@lesterX1:/cygdrive/c/Windows/System32# file bash.exe
bash.exe: PE32+ executable (console) x86-64, for MS Windows

No, that last line is saying x86-64 code (i.e. 64-bit) using PE32+ executable file format, like all 64-bit executables on 64-bit Cygwin (and 64-bit Windows for that matter).
