I would say probably not, as long as you make sure there are no MinGW or 
Msys directories left over in your PATH environment variable - the Cygwin 
versions of the Unix-style utilities should be the only ones accessible 
when you're using Cygwin. I think when you start the Cygwin shell it 
inherits the Windows PATH - so just make sure there is no Mingw or Msys 
stuff in there. If you want to use the Msys GRASS again you could change 
the PATH if necessary.
