Which version of bash for Cygwin? I tried your PoC on the latest version
of Cygwin and everything was fine.

I'm able to reproduce it using 2.05b-17 (latest default) and 3.0-2:

$ bash --version
GNU bash, version 2.05b.0(1)-release (i686-pc-cygwin)
Copyright (C) 2002 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

$ /usr/bin/bash `perl -e "print 'a'x8388600"`
    130 [main] bash 2876 cmalloc: cmalloc returned NULL
Segmentation fault

$ bash --version
GNU bash, version 3.00.16(2)-release (i686-pc-cygwin)
Copyright (C) 2004 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

$ /usr/bin/bash `perl -e "print 'a'x8388600"`
      6 [main] bash 3496 cmalloc: cmalloc returned NULL
