I would instead bind winfile to

  (call-process "cygpath" nil standard-output nil "-m" file))

(using, like `shell-command-to-string' does, the undocumented feature that
`with-output-to-string' causes `standard-output' to be a temporary
buffer).  Then you don't have to worry with `shell-quote-argument'.
