A small note: c:\cygwin\cygwin.bat runs "bash --login -i", which reads
/etc/profile. The default /etc/profile contains a "cd $HOME" command.
If you really want bash to open in the current directory, use "bash
--login --noprofile -i" or just "bash -i". Both of these come with
caveats, though: the former may not set up the right environment
(including the prompt), and the latter will not log you in (I'm not sure
exactly what the caveat here is -- maybe some shares will not be
accessible or something).

It took the computational power of three Commodore 64s to fly to the moon.
It takes a 486 to run Windows 95. Something is wrong here. -- SC sig file
