/usr/bin/env - Incorrect parsing of #! line?

- Organization: Private
I use different computers where Perl is installed different
places, so I can't hardcode the location of perl in the shebang
line. Thus, I use env, which works great on all UNIXes I work on,
#!/usr/bin/env perl -w
print "This is Perl version $]\n";
but on Cygwin I get
/usr/bin/env: perl -w: No such file or directory
why does Cygwin look for the file "perl -w". No UNIX I have
worked on would parse the shebang line that way.
People say I'm indifferent, but I don't care.
