Never mind. The problem has nothing to do with the command
line arguments or path flavours.

I think it has more to do with the change in terminal handling.
The password prompting is no longer working (even in mintty).
The lack of debug output was just buffering.

The users can run the programme from cmd.exe so I'll set up
some .bat scripts for them instead of bash functions if I
can't easily get it working from within cygwin.

Thanks for your time and effort.
