Thank you Corinna for the quick fix and investigation!
I set up an environment to test it out: https://github.com/bryphe/test-ocaml-build and ran a build against the patched dll.
It looks like the patch fixes our scenario - the build is green with the patched dll: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/bryphe/test-ocaml-build, so the patch fixes our problem.

I'm pretty new to the Cygwin ecosystem - we could certainly create nightly builds that test against cygwin releases, if that helps (and adjust our CLI script to grab the nightly / latest test release of Cygwin).
I wonder if, for a change like this, we could add a test case that exercises it - looking through the source, it looks like cygload.cc has a few test cases around pathing - perhaps it would be helpful to add a regression test for the minimal repro?
Thanks again for the help and investigation!
