Does this really work?  (I mean, did you verify the second line of
your script by running it in Git Bash?)
I'm asking because in a Unix shell (and in cmd.exe too, FWIW) double
quotes do not nest so I'm having hard time trying to understand
what's this line supposed to do.

I also wonder how does "cygpath" work.  Git for Windows is not a Cygwin
application and I doubt it ships with the program named "cygpath".

This sounds strange to me.  What do you mean by "verify the log"?
After saving the rebase script and closing the editor, you should see
Git actually working in your console as the `git rebase` command is
rather chatty (by default).  Something like "First, rewinding your
HEAD to ..." then "Applying patch (N/M)" etc.  Do you see this?
Anything other there?
