emacsclient already leaves alone any file name that begins with a
slash, so the observation that it does something with /cygdrive/x/foo
file names needs more info to understand why that happens.

But in general, it is my experience that if several programs pass file
names between them, any "magic" file names should be handled in the
same way by all of them.  Otherwise, the solution will never be
reliable enough.
