…although it's possible to rid yourself of the /cygdrive prefix and set
it to just / instead.  This comes with a few caveats, but in general
you'd need to ask the Cygwin installation what the prefix is set to via
"mount -p" or you skip the vagaries of the differing prefixes and use
"/proc/cygdrive" instead for scripts that should work either way.
Cygwin can and does process DOS-style paths, but if scripts are involved
that are not prepared to deal with them all bets are off, so they should
be avoided wherever possible.

Yes, that seems likely.
