WSL bash.exe conflicting with Git/MSYS one #3133

WSL installs bash.exe into C:\Windows\System32 which takes precedence over bash.exe available in Git bin directory (C:\Program Files\Git\usr\bin) which is working and preferable by customers.

Possible solution is to rename WSL's bash to something like wsl-bash.exe.

As a quick workaround in your builds you can add to appveyor.yml:

- del C:\Windows\System32\bash.exe
