I don't know if this is relevant, but I have to add the "/bin" directory

to avoid Windows failing to find the 'cygwin1.dll". So, the line I have is:
if ! cygrunsrv -I cygserver -d "CYGWIN cygserver" \
-p /usr/sbin/cygserver -f "Shared memory manager" \
-2 /var/log/cygserver.err -e PATH="/bin:$PATH"
Did you know that cygrunsrv adds /bin to $PATH by itself before trying
to run the inferior process for the very reason to find cygwin1.dll?
Adding it explicitely is really unnecessary. Just to be sure, I tried
it again on my machine and it works fine.
On a perfect platform, perhaps, but like I said, I really had to add it
because without it there a Windows dialog would pop up when I ran
cygserver telling me that 'Cygwin1.dll' could not be found. That was
also true on my previous installation, and one of the reasons I thought
it best to reinstall.
