I concur. I once fought Cygwin DOS incompatibility problems for several
months. My boss gave me a wild suggestion to go against intuition and
select the DOS mode during the Cygwin setup. This solved most (all is
to strong a word to ever use) of these problems. This can also be used
on an existing Cygwin install - select DOS mode and then exit. All the
mode setting does is change a registry setting.

Hmmm, on second thought this may not be what you want in your situation.

   Just be aware of what cygwin's eol mode is if you have any
eol-related problems. You can change the eol setting by running
cygwin's setup.exe again.
