Re: updated bash to latest 3.1.17(8)-release; startup has errors now

As I often do after an absence, I ran setup.exe on my system and
updated my cygwin installation.
After doing this, I get some wacky errors when I try to run a bash
shell (double-clicking the cygwin icon).
I don't know why I'm wasting my breath; no one that needs to read this
is going to do so, but...
Any time you upgrade a package and something that was working, stops
working... *RTFRNBG*! In Cygwin's case, this means the ANNOUNCEMENT that
went to cygwin-announce. And the SECOND thing you should do is STFLA for
similar problems. In this case, looking for 'bash' in the last week of
activity would have answered your question, or at least pointed you at a
thread where you could contribute without looking like an idiot who
doesn't know how to RTFRA or STFLA.
