So, I ended up implementing a fix for the problem, which is
included in the CVS for the 2.2.x series. However, since the
solution is fairly ugly, we may want to think about a neater
solution for the development version.

There's at least one serious bug left in 2.2.2, namely that
lilypond-book doesn't work correctly on LaTeX documents when
run in Cygwin.

What happens is that lilypond-book copies the header of the LaTeX file
and adds a small dummy body that is run through latex to figure out what
the line width is. The problem is that there is no such thing as
/dev/stdin in Cygwin, so the command
latex "\\nonstopmode \input /dev/stdin"
breaks which results in the setting linewidth=0pt in the .ly file
so all the music ends up on a single long line without any line breaks.

Example file:

\score{\notes\relative c'{
  \repeat unfold 10 { c d e g }

I use debian, so I can't reproduce it. Mats, could you manage this bug?
