Nope, won't work either. No file is added, exit code 0 is given.

Thanks. I came upon this issue through npm which is using these Windows 
paths for certain git operations. Unfortunately, The npm team is very 
reluctant when it comes to merging Cygwin-specific patches, so chances 
of landing a fix on their side are rather slim.

Is there a public repository for the git package used by Cygwin?
