wait, does this mean that CYGWIN shouldn't be set in autoexec.bat? I've
certainly never heard that
and I prefer setting lots of env vars there, even on Win2k (and NT before
that), since I prefer editing a file to using the GUI to set env vars
if that's really the case, it's certainly a candidate for the docs - I just
took another quick look, and didn't see anything about not setting CYGWIN (or
other env vars) in autoexec.bat
