These two lines mean that "expr" didn't work correctly.

This means that you have another set of unix-like tools in your path
*before* the Cygwin ones.  I'd also assume you have "expr" there, which
would explain why it didn't work as expected.

Same "expr" problem.

Again, looks like the wrong "awk" is found.

Same "expr" problem.

Please post the output of 'type -a expr' from a bash prompt.

It would help immensely if you read and followed the Cygwin problem
reporting guidelines at <>, especially the
part about attaching (as an uncompressed text *attachment*) the output of
'cygcheck -svr'.
