It fails in exactly the same way:
| Select an option from 5-28 or [repeat]: 25
| Connecting to ftp site...Done.
| Unable to open "h:\x\su37" for output: No such file or directory
| Unable to open "h:\x\su38" for output: No such file or directory
| Unable to open "h:\x\su72" for output: No such file or directory
| Downloading: ash.tar.gz...Unable to open "ash.tar.gz" for output: No such file
| or directory
| Download failed.
| Download failed (Abort, Retry, Fail)? [R]

| $ type ls
| ls is an alias for ls -FCU
| ls is h:/bin/ls
| $ ls h:/x
| cygpath.exe* su13 su22 su30 su7
| cygwin1.dll su14 su23 su31 su73
| gzip.exe* su15 su24 su32 su8
| mount.exe* su16 su25 su33 su9
| setup.exe* su17 su26 su34 tar.exe*
| setup.log su18 su27 su35 umount.exe*
