For the future, please attach the output of cygcheck, rather than
including it inline (see <http://cygwin.com/problems.html> for details).

Also, this is not a bug in emacs -- this is expected behavior.  In line 5
of your file, you forgot to close the angle bracket for the include
statement, and thus emacs thinks that all of the rest of the program is
part of the include.

Next time, please try your program with other indenting software, e.g. GNU
indent, or astyle, or even vim, before reporting it as a bug.
