Perhaps I'm untrusting, but I'm not sure I'd expect you to be able to use
a standard C++ library object like string from one C++ binary in Cygwin
to a non-C++ binary.

I.e. 
  cygwin std::string  is probably not the same definition as MSVC 
std::string.
Why would it be?

  is used to thinking about. Software is something like a machine, and 
  something like mathematics, and something like language, and 
  something like thought, and art, and information... 
  but software is not in fact any of those other things."
