Does it work if you do:
git add c:/test/file
Nope, won't work either. No file is added, exit code 0 is given.

Thanks. I came upon this issue through npm which is using these Windows paths for certain git
operations. Unfortunately, The npm team is very reluctant when it comes to merging Cygwin-specific
patches, so chances of landing a fix on their side are rather slim.
Is there a public repository for the git package used by Cygwin?
I think that tackling this with a script/function is a better approach ...
