Wow! Good thinking, Cliff! I think you may be on to something...
ISTM that the problem could manifest itself when running from setup as
opposed to from the shell because setup is a Windows program, so some
MSVCRT functions may be found before the Cygwin ones... We could test by
using "cygstart cygpath" or "run cygpath" or something.
