IIRC that was affected by which shell one uses. In July I was using a Win7 VM (and BTW don’t remember any trouble with the Powershell version) and the MSYS2 shell did the right thing. This last week I’ve been working in a Win10 VM and the MINGW32 shell is the one that works right. I’d put that down to MinGW64 updates between creating the two environments but I suppose that it’s also possible that it depends on the OS version.
Bottom line, try the other one from what you’ve been using.
