Unless the problem is in fact with the 1.7 root...

I have 1.5 installed as c:/cygwin and 1.7 as c:/cygwin2.

I have a similar setup.

I just tried your insert-dired examples in *scratch*, and they work (in cygwin-1.7):

(insert-directory "/home/kbrown" "-la")

I've built emacs 23 (still in pre-release testing) for cygwin-1.7, and it works fine for me except for a minor bug that's easy to work around:

Excellent. Of course I wish to try this.

Please let me know if it works for you (apart from possible BLODA issues). So far I've gotten no indication that anyone (including Steffen Sledz) has tried it. It would really be nice to finally have an up-to-date emacs package for cygwin.
