OK, misreminded that stuff.

Anyway, I got the exact same problem in many other "ELPA" packages
(Dired+, Helm, YASnippet, etc.) though not all (not in Dired-single,
Fuzzy, Idle-require to name a few).

Half wrong, half right. I had to delete the package-pkg.el(c) files, in
order to be able to launch Cygwin Emacs-w32. Dunno why the exact same
config works with native Emacs, and not with Cygwin, why both programs
go and fetch their packages at the same place on my file system...

I need more hints on this. Maybe things will clear up in the future?
