That depends on whether you've installed Cygwin correctly (using MSDOS

Well, you can run into some problems because some of the Cygwin utilities (e.g. sed) insist on using LF-only line terminations, even when you've mounted the Windows drive in text mode. I frequently have to pipe the output of sed through unix2dos.
