In what way does it "fail"? Does it produce an error message? If so,
what is the message?

Have you managed to successfully create GRASS raster maps by any
Note that, under Cygwin, all files within the GRASS database directory
must be accessed in "binary" mode. Ensure that either:
a) the Cygwin "filesystem" on which the database directory resides is
mounted in binary mode, or
b) the CYGWIN environment variable includes the "binmode" setting.
See the Cygwin documentation for more details.
