bug#10840: 24.0.93; No `man' command completion on Windows (using Cygwin

From: Drew Adams
Subject: bug#10840: 24.0.93; No `man' command completion on Windows (using Cygwin for man pages)
Date: Sat, 18 Feb 2012 11:51:23 -0800

I have Cygwin installed (a rather old version; dunno which one or how to
tell).  I load `cygwin-mount.el', then `setup-cygwin.el', both of which
are available on EmacsWiki:
emacs -Q
M-x man RET
Hitting TAB (with no minibuffer input) completes the empty input to the
two chars `^:'.  Thereafter I can do nothing with that.  Whether I type
anything after the `^:' or not, TAB just completes to `^:'.
If I instead first type `l' (as in `ls') and then hit TAB, I get [No
match].  It doesn't seem to matter what I type in the minibuffer: TAB
always says [No match].
(I can of course enter a complete command name, such as `ls' and hit
RET.  `man' then works correctly.  It is only the UNIX command-name
completion that is seemingly broken.
Am I missing something?  I tried to debug this a bit but wasn't
successful in following what was happening.  Please advise.  Thx.
