Sorry, it was a cursory test. Actually, cygwin_conv_path is only called
for absolute paths. Using an absolute Windows path containing any nonascii
character, makes lyx fail miserably.
I know this is a no-no for you (even if absolute Windows paths can sneak in
by opening a document created by a Windows version), so I will not insist,
but knowlingly breaking backward compatibility is not nice.
