That would fix the invocations of Emacs, but I suspect there are also
invocations of other programs, like addpm and etags, which will suffer
from the same problem and cannot be fixed like that without
non-trivial source-level changes.  Also, there's a problem when the
same CURDIR-based file name is passed to `cp' or `rm', which are
Cygwin programs and therefore need the original /cygdrive/x/foo file
name, and also to a non-Cygwin program like addpm.  It's a mess...
