It is actually WFLY-2523 that fixed it upstream and this is the upstream commit:

Comment 3 Scott Mumford 2014-01-20 06:00:24 UTC
Marking for inclusion in 6.2.1 release notes documentation.

Comment 8 sgilda 2014-05-13 17:40:19 UTC
Changed from Bug Fix to Known Issue to fix Bug 1097087

Comment 9 Scott Mumford 2014-05-14 02:38:26 UTC
Refactored release note text for this as a Known Issue (ER4 fixes will not be picked up in the 6.3.0 Beta release)

Original note included here for use at 6.3.0 GA:

Problems were encountered using earlier versions of JBoss EAP 6 in Cygwin. Differences in the POSIX and Microsoft Windows pathing implementations caused the path variables in the shell script to fail to function as expected. A refinement in the shell script now allows the variables to operate as expected in Cygwin environments.

Comment 10 Darran Lofthouse 2014-07-22 12:48:13 UTC
Just spotted this, don't believe it should be dev acked - we have already rejected another BZ as we have no solution for prompting for a password without echoing on cygwin.

Overall I believe cygwin support should currently be classed as an RFE.
