Please look at the regexp in the beginning of the file I attached before. I
was uncertain of whether to use "cygdrive" or "cygwin", I do not use Cygwin
myself. This can maybe explain the first error.

In the second case I am confused. I do not believe it can come from
w32-cygdrive-name-handler in the version I sent you since the first submatch
could not be empty. I searched the makefiles and the *.el files in the lisp
subdirectory. Could it maybe come from the following lines in startup.el?

    (dolist (dir load-path)
      (let ((default-directory dir))
         (load (expand-file-name "subdirs.el") t t t))
      (let ((default-directory dir))
         (load (expand-file-name "leim-list.el") t t t)))

Maybe you could just put in a (message "dir=%s" dir) as the first thing in
the dolist above in startup.el  and see what it says?
