cygpath "$@" in a script: bug?

in I thought to
see how I should do this.
The example works fine. But if I create a script that does
the same

echo "$@" | cygpath -w -f -

and call it with

testscript `/bin/ls /bin/ch*`

I get

C:\cygwin\bin\checkgid.exe \bin\chgrp.exe \bin\chmod.exe \bin\chown.exe

is it possible that it chokes upon missing newlines (CR/LF)?
Or even worse if I put in the long path:

testscript `/bin/ls /cygdrive/c/cygwin/bin/ch*`

cygpath: error converting "/cygdrive/c/cygwin/bin/checkgid.exe
/cygdrive/c/cygwin/bin/chgrp.exe /cygdrive/c/cygwin/bin/chmod.exe
/cygdrive/c/cygwin/bin/chown.exe /cygdrive/c/cygwin/bin/chroot.exe"

or yet worse when I do that on my desktop with three test files a.txt,
aa.txt and aaa.txt:
rhauser at PC:/<3>rhauser/Desktop>
testscript `ls /cygdrive/c/Docume~1/rhauser/Desktop/a*.txt`

so the first path is converted properly while number 2 and 3 are wrong?

Any thoughts?
