By mistake I replied this to Helmut, instead of sending it to the list.

I have this same problem with clisp 2.46 on cygwin.  I traced it to
`regexp:match' in `parse-cygwin-filename'.

I took it up on clisp-list mailing list (subject: regexp:match returns
with `VALUES: too many values' error).  It turned out to be a bug in
clisp - regexp:match would return nothing, not even nil in case of no
matches.  That was supposed to be fixed in a later release of clisp.

I have not tried installing 2.48 yet  - not sure if it has been
compiled on cygwin.
