- Subject: User names with spaces
My username on one of my machines has had a space in it since long before
I started using cygwin on it. I've run into one or problems because of
this now, so for the time being I've set up another account with a
different name with no space.
However I'd like to just change the name of the old account using XP Pro's
facilities for doing so, so I can keep all of my old settings etc., and
just rename my cygwin home dir to match. Has anyone tried this? I don't
want to mess everything up and end up having to reinstall lots of stuff.
