Re: Open bash at the current explorer directory?

I don't know how to do it without using .bashrc, but this works for me (current cygwin, NT 4.0)

Registry key contains:

D:\cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe -sb -sr -sl 16384 -fn fixedsys -fg gray -bg black -e /bin/env CFH="%1" /bin/bash --login

.bashrc contains

if [ "$CFH" != "" ] ; then
cd "$CFH"
unset CFH

No temporary files, bash.exe or .bash_profile is not executed twice. Also looks like cygpath -u is not needed, DOS paths seem to work in cd command.
