Hmmmm.... this should be sourced every time you have an interactive

I guess you mean: "wait for the second *tab*" etc.

In this case, the correct behaviour should *always* be (I think) to show
part of the completion, which is unique, on the first press of tab, and
a list of all possible completions on the second press of tab.

If it is not due to different settings in your shells, I have no idea
anymore why both shells behave different (stupid question: You are sure
you have the same zsh called in both cases? What does echo $ZSH_VERSION
in rxvt, respectively CMD window?) 

Maybe this is the point where you should repost this problem to the zsh
Not only it doesn't look that much like a Cygwin issue to me, but I
that on the zsh mailing list
there are also quite a few Cygwin users hanging around, so your problem
for sure be understood there.
