Well, there's about 100 million years since I last used cygwin but back then
it could be setup to either use unix newlines or windows (CRLF) newlines. And
then if you'd mix in using other external (from cygwin's point of view) tools
you would get something that wouldn't follow cygwin's view of life

Like here, you're not using cygwin's git so cygwin's configured way of
handling newlines may not be the same as msysgit's.
