Seems to work fine for me:

$ wget\*

I think this may have something to do with the fact that you're using a
proxy.  I'm not sure how wget uses 'ftp_proxy', presumably with a HTTP
CONNECT method, right?  There's no such thing as a true native ftp
proxy.  So maybe it's getting confused?  But if it works for you under
linux (assuming the same upstream version of both) then I don't know. 
What I do know is this couldn't possibly have anything to do with Cygwin
directly, except for perhaps the Cygwin upstream version of wget is not
as fresh as the one you're using on linux.
