Also, the previous link says that "/bin/sh is really bash", but:
$ /bin/sh --version

$ /bin/bash --version
GNU bash, version 4.3.48(8)-release (x86_64-unknown-cygwin)

Is this expected?


No.

$ sh --version
GNU bash, version 4.3.48(8)-release (x86_64-unknown-cygwin)

You might want to check what your /bin/sh actually is or perhaps just
remove it and set the symlink yourself.


e.g.

$ type sh
sh is hashed (/usr/bin/sh)

$ sh --version
GNU bash, version 4.4.11(2)-release (x86_64-unknown-cygwin)
