I don't see how bypassing browse-url fixes this for you, as the path will still be one that Windows does not recognize.

No, cygstart takes care of the interaction with Windows. If you have a cygwin system available, just open a shell and type

  cygstart "/unix/style/path/file.html"

and you'll see that it works. You can omit the quotes as long as there's nothing in the file name that needs quoting (like spaces).
