I'm aware of that :}. Thats why I tried stepi - which should work

There are three threads active - all in system

thread 1688.0x694  0x77f7f571 in _system_dlls__ ()
thread 1688.0xc38  0x7ffe0304 in ?? ()
thread 1688.0xccc  0x7ffe0304 in ?? ()

Yep. thread 1 and 3 has that problem, the other one shows
#0  0x7ffe0304 in ?? ()
#1  0x77e74c70 in _system_dlls__ ()
#2  0x61006285 in thread_stub (arg=0x610a6930)
    at ../../../../../src/winsup/cygwin/

Ok that helps a bit, it's exiting with REPARENTING set (which is very
weird as sh should be vforking, not using _P_OVERLAY), but I still don't
grok 0x400 as a exit value. it seems a little large:}.

It's in ntdll.dll, the kernel API gateway.
