I ran into something similar trying to get some simple scripts using "grep" to work under both FreeBSD and Cygwin.
"grep" wouldn't find matches for a string under Cygwin, but it did under FreeBSD.
I eventually modified the scripts to try to match only the alphanumeric characters.
I think this is a problem with the MS Windows command shell and the way it treats characters; Cygwin bash uses the command shell and obviously doesn't do everything the same way as bash on some UNIX(tm) variant OS.
