On Cygwin, the "standard" sh is actually ash -- a stripped down bash
that is suppose to be quicker at running scripts (e.g., configure).
Nevertheless, I think that this is an excellent suggestion -- sh may be
doing some goofy things so it is worth a shot.

Juan, please try this and report back to the list -- I won't have access
to the machine that had problems running the regression tests for a while.
