I agree with Francois, I think this the mixed slashes (and/or other  
factors) are confusing Cygwin's shell interpreter or md5 command or

The output should be a 128-bit value in hex format. From your output,  
it looks like you just need to remove the beginning slash and capture  
the resulting output in {whatever}.md5.

I'm not sure what example we should put into the wiki, since this  
problem would appear to be specific to Cygwin. Perhaps a better  
general recommendation for how to generate MD5 hashes in Windows  
would be appropriate.
