I get "access refused" when I try to edit a file in this folder. I can't use sudo to change chmod either, kinda stuck. Any idea?

I ran into this same strange thing, probably because it is used by Cygwin.
What you can do: delete the old file, then you can create it again.

Thanks @cmalard, It works good for git commands such as git rebase -i HEAD~3,
but when I try to open a file,
e.g. subl ~/.zshrc, it opens in the wrong path:

Expected:
C:\cygwin64\home\myuser\.zshrc

Actual (wrong):
C:\home\myuser\.zshrc

Another example:
subl /usr/local/bin/test

Expected:
C:\cygwin64\usr\local\bin\test

Actual (wrong):
C:\usr\local\bin\test
