I'm attaching a patch against tcp wrapper version 7.6 that seems to work
for me. You'll have to get the source, apply the patch and build it 
yourself. It's pretty simple. Here's what I use to build:

  [ get 
    and unpack the sources ]
  $ tar zxf /tmp/tcp_wrappers_7.6.tar.gz
  $ cd tcp_wrappers_7.6
  [ apply this patch and build ]
  $ patch -p0 -s < /tmp/tcp-wrappers-7.6-cygwin.diff
  $ cp tcpd.exe /usr/sbin
  [ edit /etc/hosts.allow, /etc/hosts.deny and /etc/inetd.conf, restart
    Cygwin inetd service and you're good to go. Troubles? Use 
    tcpdmatch, it's your friend. ]
