A popular Git implementation for Windows is Google's msysgit. When running the msysgit "Git Bash", XINS apparently does not recognize that the system run is actually Windows (with a UNIX-like layer on top), similar to a Cygwin-environment.
Steps to reproduce:
- Install Google's msysgit, see http://code.google.com/p/msysgit/
- Run 'Git Bash' (under Start -> Programs -> Git)
- Execute 'xins -version'
- XINS output with Java, Ant and XINS versions
