This is because your installation is broken. The G++ include files
such as iostream.h and streambuf.h etc should *never* be in
/usr/include, but rather get installed in /usr/include/g++-3 by
default (at least for gcc that's distributed with Cygwin 1.1.7).

I don't know how you managed this, but you'll have to *remove* all
offending files from /usr/include and reinstall gcc.
