POSIX specifies that "//" is handled in an implementation defined
manner, so Cygwin and Windows are not really special.

See POSIX section 4.13 Pathname Resolution:

    A pathname consisting of a single <slash> shall resolve to the root
    directory of the process. A null pathname shall not be successfully
    resolved. If a pathname begins with two successive <slash> characters,
    the first component following the leading <slash> characters may be
    interpreted in an implementation-defined manner, although more than two
    leading <slash> characters shall be treated as a single <slash>
