Re: error setting up ipc-daemon

That's all well and good -- but ipc-daemon doesn't use cygserver. It

An excerpt from "cygrunsrv --help" below
-e, --env <VAR=VALUE> Optional environment strings which are added
to the environment when service is started.
You can add up to 255 environment strings using
the `--env' option.
Note: /bin is always added to $PATH to allow all
started applications to find at least cygwin1.dll.
shows that you shouldn't really need to add c:\cygwin\bin to your system
path (if one uses cygrunsrv, that is). If that is not the case, then it's
a bug in cygrunsrv (or an error in documentation).
I should probably rip out that stuff eventually, and rely on cygserver.
But since ipc-daemon will be replaced by the cygwin-daemon, someday, I
really don't want to mess with it if it isn't broken.
As far as the actual difficulties here, I think it's probably an
environment issue; ipc-deamon MUST have cygwin1.dll in its user context
PATH. See /usr/doc/Cygwin/cygipc/README.
