I'm not sure I spot what you think is the bug.  Everything in your trace
looked like expected behavior.  I'm guessing that maybe you were thrown
off by this part of the output?

That warning was in place to warn of a future change in behavior.  The
change has now been completed, and you will not get that warning in
coreutils 7.1.  But if I guessed wrong, then you will have to be more
explicit on how what you posted shows a bug (that is, give us more details
on what actually happened vs. what you expected to happen).

Your trace has earmarks of being a cygwin 1.5.x installation.  You may be
interested in upgrading to cygwin 1.7.0, where a newer pre-built coreutils
version is available.  However, details about cygwin installation are
better discussed on the cygwin AT cygwin DOT com mailing list.
