Are you using the MSYS Bash shell?  If so, this configuration is not
supported, see nt/INSTALL.  (MSYS Bash has its own ideas about what
"/c" means, so it changes it to something that confuses cmd.exe.)

Remove the directory where MSYS Bash lives from Path, or rename sh.exe
to something else, then try again.

If indeed this is caused by MSYS, I will close this bug.
