Thanks, guys.

But, given that MS-DOS paths and POSIX paths are both reasonably standard, I 
was hoping that Emacs could perhaps be configured to use the right one for the 
right occasion.  I am fairly happy with Cygwin itself.  It is low-maintenance 
and reasonably comprehensive.  Do we have to give up Cygwin just because Emacs 
can't figure out the right format for path names?
