For myself, it is occasionally nice to have a Cygwin sandbox environment 
to play with when I'm on one of my Macs, away from a Windows box.  Wine 
is cheaper than a VM in terms of hardware requirements and licensing.

Unfortunately, Wine is still a bag of fail, so I continue to put up with 
the problems of running Windows in a VM.

This bug could well be Wine's, rather than Cygwin's.
