I notice that the cygwin Emacs is relatively old.  Perhaps it's
incapable of doing some of the things I'm used to doing in Linux.

To do that, I'd still have to redo most of them interactively because
they tell Emacs where R and ESS are.

Perhaps this might give an indication of what's the matter.

system("pwd") gives /cygdrive/c/path/to/folder
getwd() gives C:/path/to/folder

Even though they mean the same thing, it appears that equivalence is
not universally recognised.  Does that indicate that the installation
of R should have been "from cygwin" and not "from Windows"?
