java contains a File object which contains two static fields, one for path
separator and one for a directory separator. on windows, they end up being
; and \. . .
perhaps this has something to do with the issue at hand? (probably not; the
classpath is set and used elsewhere) however, it would make sense for a
native application to be designed to work off the native settings. cygwin's
settings aren't native to the windows environment :)

Would you care for a drink? I mean, if it were, like,
disabled and you had to look after it?
