cc. `printf', `echo -e', and the $'...' code now process only two hex
    after a `\x' escape sequence for compatibility with other shells,
    the documentation was changed to note that the octal and hex escape
    sequences result in an eight-bit value rather than strict ASCII.

The above quote was posted on the Cygwin mailing list by Chet Ramey the
bash maintainer.  IIRC, there was discussion prior to 2.50 release
concerning these.
