Go ahead, please do.

That's because you're starting it by double-clicking it in Windows. You
are supposed to start it from the cygwin cmd shell:
...as described here: http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/UiSimulator
Unfortunately, the "Simplified Guide" wrongly told you to double-click
it. I have corrected this now.
If you insist on double-clicking, copy SDL.dll to c:\Windows or something.

See above. It didn't occur to me that people would try to start it from
the Windows Explorer.

You have missed to checkout the manual from CVS:
$ cvs co manual
This will checkout the manual from CVS into the "manual" directory.
hence, your build directory can't be called "manual", but "manual-h120"
or something like that.
