First, it's an easy workaround. Second, I am not sure how much people
have problem with this issue. But as far as I know I have the problem
always with German Windows systems so other people may have problems
too. If I interpret your cygcheck correctly then you are using a
English version, so the problem seems to be a more common problem. I
reported this for some time but Eli did not believe my findings.
Personally I would add a entry to the etc/PROBLEMS file or to the
Emacs FAQ for Windows about that issue.
