We're missing context. "cmd //c" is intended to be executed from MSYS
(function named ...msys_to_w32 remember) and the MSYS command line
parsing heuristic is supposed treat //c as if you really wanted to say /c.

And that works for me on Windows 7:

$ cmd //c type 'C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\bin\cmd'

"$COMSPEC" "$@"
$ uname -s

So, I'm wondering in what context your func_convert_core_msys_to_w32 is
