Thanks.  This unlocks the mystery.  I think we can now close the bug
report, do you agree?  Perhaps etc/PROBLEMS should advise Cygwin users
to set CYGWIN=noglob (as I understand the default is CYGWIN=glob).

I still don't understand why GLOB_BRACE causes "{0}" be expanded --
that sounds like a bug in the implementation of `glob' used by Cygwin,
no?  Perhaps a Cygwin bug report is in order.
