I believe I have things fixed. The issue was that there was a HOME variable set before Windows got started very far.
Digging around the web, I found an article which pointed me to Control Panel->System->Advanced->Environment variables, where I deleted it and Cygwin was happy to create a /home/lwv27 for me after that.
Thank you all so much for your help.
