What I'm saying is that "/utils/lib/tkcvs" will be interpreted as
x:\utils\lib\tkcvs where x: is your current drive.
You may be dubious but tcl/tk does not really support cygwin. What we
have shipped is pretty much what you get when you build tcl/tk natively
The alternative is to rewrite tcl/tk to use Windows methods for updating
the screen rather than X methods and no one has ever been ambitious enough
to do this.
It is regrettable but it is true.
