File paths redirected to MSYS directory

Thanks for your help. I have fixed the Windows path but Cygwin seems to
be altering it when loading it in to its own $PATH environment variable.
Compare below, my path as obtained from Windows cmd console and from
Cygwin. Notice the line 'C:\cygwin\bin' in the first one (end of the second
line) has been turned in to '/usr/bin' in the second one (end of the third
line). Why would this be happening? Also, is it a problem that the first two
entries in the Cygwin path are '/usr/...' rather than '/cygdrive/c/cygwin/usr/...' ?
