The environment variables are case sensitive! 
$path is empty in my shell!
In UNIX mode PATH is converted to something like 
/usr/bin:/winnt/system32:/winnt:/progra~1/micros~1/Office" ...
If you do not use a pearl version based on the cygwin.dll it won't handle
these paths!

Try to run the shell in DOS/Win mode (have a look at the batch file starting
the shell).
