The call to cygwin_conv_to_full_posix_path is still present because nobody has submitted a patch to fix it.

I don't use cygwin, nor do I do any development on it. The cygwin port is supported elsewhere, and they periodically feed patches back to the master development tree.

I haven't gotten a patch from them to replace that function with a call to something else.
