This is not Cygwin specific. It would apply to any system that allows
user names to contain spaces. (But I don't know offhand if there are
any systems other than Windows and Cygwin that allow this.) You should
send this report to emacs-devel or, better, report it as an emacs bug
(send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org).
