My experience showed that my personal fork errors were never solved by
autorebasing. In my case, autorebasing brought difficulties with xz
that i don't understand and difficulties with my ~100
home-built DLLs (ie i would have to rebase them also, but "manually").

With my usual environment this time:

Fri May 25 14:08:30 CEST 2012
% /usr/bin/strace -o date.trace /usr/bin/date
   8862 [main] date 3440 D:\Home\dexcoff1\dexcoff1\cyg12e\bin\date.exe: *** fatal error - internal error reading the windows environment - too many environment variables?

No need for native Windows, what are we using Cygwin for?
For the rest, i use aliases (installed in .cshrc, for the limited
number of commands that i need to enter on the command line) and full
paths (in variables) for shell scripts or equivalent (e.g. makefiles).

You mean "!::". It comes from Windows i suppose. It must not be
completely uncommon since eg has it also.

My COMSPEC uses D:. I have double boot. For my Cygwin activities i
always use D: only (i cannot write on C:). My XP is French only, ie
'cygpath -D' returns
"/cygdrive/d/Documents and Settings/dexcoff1/Bureau" ("Bureau" is
french for "Desktop").

I need leap seconds (right/Europe/Paris), i also need to use the
tzdata package (see that i select.
Also, i have no reason to trust the Date/Time panel from XP.

Hope this helps,
