I can't help you here.  I've not tried cygwin's 23.0.92 yet, but I
can't say I've noticed this on Linux, although because I don't have
transient-mark-mode turned on, I wouldn't really expect to.

'Twas ever thus.  I think you're confusing C-x C-f with C-x C-v
(find-alternate-file).  The former has always* defaulted to the
current directory.  The latter has always defaulted to the current

[TIP: if you haven't already, try ido-mode.  It redefines all buffer
and file selection functions, and although it takes a little while to
learn to get the most out of it, IMHO you'll quickly wonder how you
managed without it.]

[*] within my admittedly patchy memory.  I *have* verified that 21.2.1
    (the earliest version I have at hand) worked this way, on both
    cygwin and Linux.
