I verified that the actual directory names and the settings in PATH are
the same, is there another place where Windows returns garbage?

Actually I upgraded to 1.5.11, but I saw the problems also with 1.5.10,
cannot say when the cut happened, IIRC I used 1.5.5 and then upgraded to
I don't think that it is in the path code. Must be some other reason.
E.g. cygserver runs in background, but cygrunsrv thinks it receives an
error and exits, also sshd is running happily in background without
cygrunsrv sitting on it. So it is not the problem that the application
is not running.
