Yep that is the behavior I get.

Well, not intentionally, anyway, and if I use command
completion upon 'wp' I do not get 'wperl'.

Btw. my Perl version is v5.8.5 built for cygwin-thread-multi-64int.

For 95% of my work I use the Cygwin perl, but this is a build
application that was shoved down our throat here, and Cygwin
interferes with the used compilers, so all references to
cygwin in any form or measure, are removed before the build
process starts. So I use the AS Perl, which is also needed
by the build process, to control everything in this case.
