A "change log" is nothing like "the manual or documentation".

The third bulleted item under "Reporting guidelines" at the
multiply-mentioned problems web page is actually *bolded*:

  # Run cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck.out and include that file as an
  attachment in your report.  Please do not compress or otherwise encode
  the output.  Just attach it as a straight text file so that it can be
  easily viewed.

cygcheck will tell you what version you have installed and could provide
information for finding out why cygpath is behaving differently for you.

Please include this information in any problem report.
