Does cygstart always expand arguments?

I was trying to get cygpath and cygstart to launch
a non-cygwin-compiled program (gvim) and running
into difficulties with files that have spaces in
echo hello > "file with spaces.txt"
cygstart gvim "file with spaces.txt"
causes gvim to see three files, "file",
"with", and "spaces.txt".
Is this a basic Windows limitation or is there
some hack to get around this? cygstart appears to
be the dead end.
Thanks - Jim
