mysql-test-run.pl stops with "Could not find version of MySQL" though mysqladmin is doing it. Mysql.exe and mysqltest.exe are also running. Bug in the perl-script?

How to repeat:
start cygwin on a vista 64-bit machine as user "administrator" to have not problems with permissions. do then
perl mysql-test-run.pl alsias
