It isn't.  I don't know what's wrong on your machine but autoindent
is not enabled by default in Cygwin vim.  The Cygwin install is not
different from the (non-GUI) vim installation on any other machine.
I'm sorry but there's apparently something wrong on your machine.

Do you have another version of vim installed as well?  Perhaps a
native Windows version?  Do you have another vimrc file which is
used by that version and which is accidentally opened by Cygwin
vim as well?
