Get Cygwin home directory path for current user

According to this:


cygpath -w ~

...formerly produced to stdout the home directory path for the current user.

This seems not be the case any more: When I run cygpath -w ~, I get just ~.

Is this by design? If so, what's the way to programmatically determine
the Windows path of ~?
