The cygwin bash must be found via your exec-path. Maybe you must
extend this variable. If it is found, you shall check what kind of
prompt it offers - Tramp is a little bit sensible in the kind of
prompt it accepts.

But it isn't necessary to use the _local_ bash, because Tramp connects
immediately after calling bash to the remote host.

Best regards, Michael.
