In this case it is.

The path still uses ':' as separator and some added paths start with 
/home/xxx which are typically Cygwin paths. Both cannot be processed by a 
Windows-based java.

Therefore Stefan is right.

However, it seems that it's not a Java application that creates those 
constructs, but some Unix shell scripts. If the original poster can adjust 
those to provide real Windows paths when invoking Java, he might get Gump 
running. Stefan might be interested in patches in that case ;-)
