Same thing exists in Emacs versions back to at least 20.7, so this is
nothing new.
M-x grep foo ~/mydir/f*.el
results in this kind of output in buffer *grep*:
/cygdrive/c/mydir/foobar.el:203: blah blah foo blah
Seems like Emacs & grep should be able to keep `~/' instead of printing
`/cygdrive/c/'.  The current behavior is less readable and uses 10 more
emacs -Q, then load cygwin-mount.el then setup-cygwin.el, found here:
In GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600)
 of 2011-05-10 on 3249CTO
