Last I checked emacs was not part of the cygwin distribution, so we
should find out which emacs you're using. Start with something simpler.
Try to find out if it's a cygwin issue, a emacs thing or a combination.
Do you have write access to the file under cygwin:
$ touch testing
$ echo "Testing write access with echo #1"> testing
$ echo "Testing write access with echo #2">> testing
$ vi testing # Something simple like: OTesting write access with
And try step 3 and 4 with the isse-xml.tex file
