I was about to comment similarly, but I was observing that it sounds
like non-Cygwin processes were being spawned (or doing the spawning).
So, a couple of things:

1) Try sending the output of cygcheck -s.  It sounds like this is
going to be a problem, so at least report the output of echo $PATH.
2) If the wrong executables are being launched, putting /bin and
/usr/bin at the end of PATH isn't going to help, but putting them at
the front will (export PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:$PATH).
