You may be better off asking questions related to cygwin on the cygwin
mailing list.

Most likely, you accidentally inserted literal carriage returns (\r)
into your file, but did not tell bash that you want to ignore carriage
returns.  This is a symptom that is typically limited to cygwin
installations, and has nothing to do with coreutils.  Run 'd2u wa.sh' to
remove those carriage returns.
