I assume your $CYGWIN contains "check_case:strict", since that is the
setting in which the short paths won't work. They will work if $CYGWIN
contains "check_case:adjust". So, you can use the following sequence in
your .bashrc to get the correct form of the windows path:
if [ -n "$CFH" ] ; then
CFH="$(export CYGWIN="$CYGWIN check_case:adjust";cygpath -w -l "$CFH")"
Hope this helps,
