As far as I know, yes.

Despite having cygwin installed everywhere, we were using gmake 3.80 built
using cl from the sources, and the native activestate perl 5.8.2.  So,
neither the cygwin perl nor the cygwin make was involved.  Everything
worked OK for us from a DOS window, it was only when a cygwin shell was
involved that we got the problem.  The small test case seemed to confirm
that it was due to cygwin.dll.

I cannot verify that it was ever actually repaired in any cygwin version,
since once we got that far in our diagnosis, we modified all our perl
scripts to eliminate the `cmd` constructs which triggered it.

The OP (Dan Gilbert) replied privately that his perl scripts don't have
the backtick construct.  I'm not sure whether he has any cygwin involvement
at all.
