What *exactly* doesn't work anymore?  Can you please provide a simple
testcase which shows the problem reproducible?

As for your trick, it still works for me running the X gs.

  $ uname -a
  CYGWIN_NT-5.1 cathi 1.7.0(0.160/4/2) 2006-10-23 17:00 i686 Cygwin
  $ cd /bin
  $ mv gs.exe gs.exe.orig
  $ ln -sf /usr/X11R6/bin/gs.exe gs.exe
  $ ls -l gs.exe*
  lrwxrwxrwx  1 corinna Users      21 Oct 23 17:25 gs.exe -> /usr/X11R6/bin/gs.exe
  -rwxr-x---+ 1 corinna Users 4507648 Feb 15  2006 gs.exe.orig.exe
  $ cd
  $ gs
  <Correctly starts the X gs binary>

(Eric?  Do you see what happens when renaming foo.exe to foo.exe.orig
 using mv(1) from coreutils-5.97-1 ?  That doesn't look good to me...)
