Wild guess 2 (sorry if I have missed this thought before)
/tmp/something.doc gets sent to cygstart... points to
c:\cygwin\tmp\something.doc, who opens word with "/tmp/something.doc",
who looks for c:\tmp\something.doc?
Nope: cygstart is Posix-path-aware, so will translate /tmp/something.doc
to (usually) c:\tmp\something.doc internally.
