Yes, I was just looking at that. I think setup_win_environ (or its guts 
before some early refactoring) pre-dated CW_SYNC_WINENV.

Before removing it, I'll have to verify some things -- like whether 
that-cygwin-fork-we-don't-mention has CW_SYNC_WINENV, and how hard it 
would be to add if not -- since I want run to work "over there" too.

With respect to the orginal discussion that spawned this thread, I'm 
going to hold off on any changes to run/run2/cygutils until a consensus 
is reached regarding:
   1) what's going to happen "inside" cygwin wrt win32 cwd;
   2) what new APIs are provided
   3) and a project on how soon an official 1.7.7 will be released with
      those changes
and then evaluate how best to modify the client apps.
