This sounds very much like a temporary-filename issue.  The reported  
filename's lack of a valid directory specifier looks highly suspicious  
to me.  Are your TEMP, TEMPDIR, TMP, and TMPDIR environment variables  
set? Are their values sensible?  Do you have appropriate permissions  
on the directories they point to?  These are the kinds of thing I  
usually need to check when setting up a new Cygwin build environment.

Admittedly, we do not use cabal on Windows (firewall prevents it from  
working), but the other ghc tools generally seem to work without  
problems for us under Cygwin.
