RFR(S): 8151291: $EXEC yields "unknown command" on Cygwin

I revoke the RFR for the time being; there is another issue with invoking $EXEC from within a Cygwin directory that does not have a /cygdrive prefix (e.g., /home/...). This will require some deeper investigation.

Once a solution is in place, I will post another RFR in this thread.
