[NT] Problem with `man' function

With Cygwin installed and in my PATH, `M-x man' used to work fine for
me.  In the past year, it has stopped working; all I get is "error in
process sentinel. Can't find the xxx manpage."  I was able to work
around the problem either by setting  shell-file-name to 


or, guessing that it was a CMD.EXE line length issue, by shortening
Man-filter-list to

  (("sed" "" "-e '/^[^A-^Z][^A-^Z]*$/d'" "-e '/^[[789]/s///g'" ))

I don't know what the best fix might be.  Can anyone tell me the
implications of setting shell-file-name to "sh?"
