In the case in point, the problem was with the executable _before_
the pipe.

Or with subsequent _slashed_ _and_ _unquoted_ executable(s).
Quote whole command line (with slashed programs/paths single quoted):

M-x shell-command
""c:/cygwin/bin/ls" | grep foo"
M-x shell-command
""c:/cygwin/bin/ls" | "c:/cygwin/bin/grep" foo"


cmdproxy -c """c:/cygwin/bin/ls" | grep o""
cmdproxy -c """c:/cygwin/bin/ls" | "c:/cygwin/bin/grep" o""

and it _works_.

cmd /?:

If /C or /K is specified, then the remainder of the command line after
the switch is processed as a command line, where the following logic is
used to process quote (") characters:

1. If all of the following conditions are met, then quote characters on the command line are preserved:

        - no /S switch
        - exactly two quote characters
        - no special characters between the two quote characters,
          where special is one of: &<>()@^|
        - there are one or more whitespace characters between the
          the two quote characters
        - the string between the two quote characters is the name
          of an executable file.

    2.  Otherwise, old behavior is to see if the first character is
        a quote character and if so, strip the leading character and
        remove the last quote character on the command line, preserving
        any text after the last quote character.
