Just installed the latest Cygwin release and the bash shell
(2.05b.0(9)-release) does not read my $HOME/.bashrc file.
The HOME env. variable was not set when I installed Cygwin so I set it
later. Maybe the installation uses the value of $HOME when the installation
was done (just a guess). I also changed the 'mount c: /cygdrive' to 'mount
c: /c' and then set it back. Still doesn't work.
Any ideas on what I need to do to get bash to read my ~/.bashrc?
