Looks like cygpath gets the wcstombs system call from ntdll rather than
from cygwin1.dll due to a linking order problem.  Unfortunately ntdll
exports a couple of convenient C functions like wcstombs, or even
sprintf.  I applied a patch so the next version of cygpath should
do the conversion more correctly.
