Yeah ;-/ This was my first reply to the list and I didn't realize that the
default reply-to address was set to sender as opposed to the list *sigh*.

Sounds like a fine suggestion, but there's nothing I can do about it ;-)
You might consider sending the comment back to the cygwin mailing list.

No, this shouldn't be done. The thing that we're trying to
do is to emulate an *nix environment as closely as possible.
However, a change that I would suggest is as follows. When I
installed 1.3.9 yesterday it didn't create a $HOME directory for
me and $HOME was simply set to my windows username. What I
would suggest is that this be changed so that upon install that
/home/UsErNaMe would be created, $HOME would be
set to it on login by default, and that a default .bashrc and .inputrc
be copied into it from /etc
