Note that at least "stop" has the same issue.

>                 Key: KARAF-3964
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-3964
>             Project: Karaf
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: karaf-core
>         Environment: Windows 7, Cygwin
>            Reporter: David M. Karr
>            Priority: Trivial
> Several of the Karaf scripts have "if $cygwin" blocks that convert some variables to
Windows form. If the variable referenced is not set, cygpath will fail with "cygpath: can't
convert empty path".  The impact is debatable, as the variable after the command will be unset,
same as before it, but the error message can be confusing for users.
> Most of these cases are likely dealt with, but one that is not is in the "start" script,
for the "CLASSPATH" variable.  I don't set a global CLASSPATH value, and I believe it's generally
a bad idea to set one.
> The most reasonable fix is to simply not run cygpath if CLASSPATH is not set or is empty.
 Therefore, change this:
> CLASSPATH=`cygpath --path --windows "$CLASSPATH"`
> to:
> if [ ! -z "$CLASSPATH" ]; then
>     CLASSPATH=`cygpath --path --windows "$CLASSPATH"`
> fi
