I think the problem is on the C level, not on the Lisp level.  Take a
look at w32term.c:construct_drag_n_drop -- it uses ANSI version of
DragQueryFile to get the file name, then decodes it by DECODE_FILE.
But DECODE_FILE uses UTF-8 in the cygw32 build, so this is
inappropriate for decoding file names that come from Windows APIs.

Instead, in the cygw32 build, construct_drag_n_drop should use
DragQueryFileW and convert the file name to the internal Emacs
representation using from_unicode.
