bin/idea.sh and Cygwin

Hello, I tried to use  bin/idea.sh  with Cygwin to generate   project files for  IDEA  IntelliJ Community .

The  project file generation seems to work and outputs the   .idea - folder  with lots of xml files in it .
However  ,  when opening the project from IDEA,  it fails  with  a message :

VCS root  configuration  problems  -

The directory  \cygdrive\C\hg\open\jdk\jdk6 is registered as a hg4idea root  but no hg4idea  repositories were found  there .
C.\hg\open\jdk\jdk6


Could it be that  the Cygwin-paths  in the generated xml-files  confuse  the IDEA intelliJ IDE ?
Has anybody ever used it successfully  with Cygwin/ Windows  ?
( or with some other UNIX shell/toolset for Windows) ?


Best regards, Matthias
