  For troubles with xsltproc see
this is not an XSLT question, that's not the appropriate forum.
IMHO stacking URI+Cygwin "unix" remapping+Windows path sounds a 
good way to get in trouble. Either use Unix filepaths or use Windows
filepaths with Windows libraries, but mixing all this together on
top of the already messy file:// URI constructs sounds just a recipe
for disaster. Unless you like doing this kind of debugging, don't do
