Why would you expect Cygwin tools to function with any perceptible difference
in one shell versus another?  With the exception of bugs, they should work 
the same no matter where they are invoked.  There is no code in Cygwin which
checks the type of shell that's running.  If you have a specific concern or
question, you're better off asking it directly than hiding it in an obscure
question like the one above.
