Yes, it seems that cygwin's globbing is never desired for programs run
by Emacs.  But of course, Emacs may start non-cygwin programs which in
turn execute cygwin programs expecting them to do the globbing
(e.g. running cygwin programs from a CMD process in *shell*), so setting
CYGWIN=noglob might not be right either.
