Actually no, it's not wrong.  You told cygpath that the parameter you 
are passing is a path list and you told it to convert it to a Windows
path.  In that case, it's going to interpret the path list as a UNIX 
path and convert "C" and "\foo" to a Windows path list format.  That
looks like what you got to me and would be exactly what I'd expect,
given the parameters you specified.

Try removing the --path flag.  I think you'll get what you want, though I
don't know why you have to ask cygpath to convert a Windows path to a
Windows path (i.e. a no-op).
