      I tried setting shellslash and while it did perform as
      expected, it did not alter the basic problem.

      Let me be more concrete in my example. Here are the commands
      I type at a tcsh prompt on a w2k box w/ cygwin:

      % setenv TMP c:/temp
      % C:/usr/local/vim/vim60/gvim.exe scp://wu//tmp/ss

      A separate window is popped up in which the external scp
      command is called. In that window the following messages
      are shown:

      C:\WINNT\system32\cmd.exe /c scp wu:/tmp/ss c:\temp\VIA4.tmp
      ssh: c: No address associated with hostname
      lost connection
      Hit any key to close this window...

      As you can see, the request to the remote host wu is made
      for the file /tmp/ss. My setting TMP is shown to be effective
      by the use of c:\temp. Setting shellslash does result in
      the temporary file switching from c:\temp\VIA4.tmp to
      C:/temp/VIA4.tmp. However, the leading "c:" is still present
      and still confusing scp.
