As it happens, I'm running tetex as we speak. It's never been a problem
for me, except the time I had MikTex in my cygwin path and the two
fought. I don't know anything about ec-fonts or jadetex, though. Here
are the cygwin packages I have installed:

You didn't say what OS or version of cygwin you're running, but assuming
it's 1.7 you might try a fresh install to, say, c:\cygwin-tex, which
includes only the base packages and tetex. It won't harm your existing
install in any way, and you should be able to use the saved packages
from previous downloads rather than having to download again.
If that works you probably have a corrupted cygwin installation (which
would make sense given all the strange errors you mention); if it
doesn't work then something really weird is going on.
