It's not a bug. Cygwin has been on record for a very long time that Windows paths might work, but since it's emulating Linux, they are not guaranteed to work. If they work, great. If they don't work, too bad. Some maintainers try to keep them working in their respective programs, but that is a courtesy, not fixing a bug.
