For me there is no automagic path conversion from
cygwin to Windows either. But your workaround works
perfectly fine :)

I guess using cmd.exe with the cygwin in the path is
not an option for me, I prefer to use bash on all
platforms. Out of curiosity, can you really use tools
such as vim in cmd.exe like this? Or am I
misunderstanding you?
