It doesn't seem to mind the DOS style paths as they are converted by 
cygwin, however the d2u resolved my problem.

I notice when I reinstalled cygwin, I chose the Unix/binary default text 
file type which I believe is at the root of this problem. I have now 
reinstalled again with the DOS/text line endings option and it is happy 
again without having to convert all of the line endings to Unix style.

Thanks for your help and sorry about the double post.
