In a Jython2.5b4 installation, the startup shell script 
/path/to/jython2.5b4/jython contains the following line:

  CP_DELIMITER=":"

which causes the script to fail on Cygwin based systems.  It should be 
changed to

  if $cygwin; then
    CP_DELIMITER=";"
  else
    CP_DELIMITER=":"
  fi

JRuby's command line script (which ours is based off of) contains better 
cygwin support than ours, they seem to workaround this issue in a 
different way. It's here:

http://github.com/jruby/jruby/blob/master/bin/jruby

Thus the appropriate way to fix this would be to incorporate JRuby's 
cygwin stuff into ours, to keep our scripts more closely related

This was finally fixed after a discussion on the mailing list with Weiqi. 
Thanks
