Running them directly from the commandline works.

Yes, the upstream launcher is still broken, and I didn't want to fix that. My hackish patch would have been:

diff -bu ./

my $result = $control->ShellExecute("open",
#$options->{wperl} ? $options->{perl} : $options->{perl},
- $options->{perl},
+ "perl.exe",
"$extra_opts \"$options->{current}\"",

By the way, is there any reason the cygwin specific README is empty.
