I guess that was an attempt to fix something that isn't made things right, but
left there for years.
I would rather propose to solve it the other way around and use /etc/fstab
functionality to mount Cygwin's /tmp to current user's %TEMP% folder.
I don't know, how would that work in multi-user environment, though.
