I'm guessing that Cygwin invokes the browser with a URL that is
munged by the file-name transformation stuff.  I'd try to write a
simple application that prints its command-line arguments, then force
Emacs to invoke that application as a Web browser, and see what args
it gets from Emacs.

Perhaps then you will know where to complain about this ;-)
