I am not sure whether this is Oracle issue because if I use the same command
from the command prompt of Windows, it does work.
e.g. the following command works from windows does prompt. The files gets
created in d:\oracle8i\exp directory.
exp system/manager file=d:\Oracle8i\Exp\Exp.dmp full=Y
but the same thing does not work well when executed from cygwin shell.

Sounds like a problem that you should be asking Oracle about, or am I
missing why this is a Cygwin issue?
