To answer my own question, I backed out changes that were made to jam_src/expand.c since the last "stable" build to work around this problem. The changes were for unit testing and don't jive with cygwin.
The value of the string l->string at the point of failure, at:
assertion "!strcmp( l->string, "c:\\foo\\bar" )" failed: file "expand.c", line 723
is "C:\\cygwin\\usr\\c\\foo\\bar". Back to the drawing board. :-)

There's code in the var_expand_unit_test that tries to verify the
functionality of expanding paths. In the case of Cygwin it wants to
check that something like "/cygdrive/c/foo/bar" is translated to
something like "c:\foo\bar". The problem comes in that the "/cygdrive"
part is a user configurable path on Cygwin. I wrote code that tries to
decipher what that 'cygdrive' is, as there doesn't seem to be any Cygwin
call to get that value. Unfortunately, or fortunately from my POV, I
don't have Cygwin to test with. So any help in getting that code working
is appreciated ;-)
