The only problem I'm aware of is that ^C does not work (because the
Emacs pipe is not TTY as Cygwin excepts it). If you're problems are
different please post examples and also your shell startup files (i.e.
your ~/.bashrc or ~/.[t]csh + ~./login).

I assume you've read the Cygwin FAQ entry: How do I run bash as a shell
under NT Emacs? (
