RE: weird hanging problems with cygwin v1.1.2

%HOME% is set to M:\, which is a pointer to my home directory that lives on
a Linux box running Samba.  When i first run bash, it sources my .bashrc
file in M:\, but after that point, i don't know why it would have any
further reliance on that particular network drive.  I could see an instance
where if it does continually try to access M: and Samba tries to contact the
PDC of the CURLDEV domain to do continual authentication, that might cause a
hang.  The thing is, though, that a) i don't know why something like ls.exe
would need access to %HOME% after bash starts up (and especially just
running ls from DOS, not even from bash!), and b) i haven't experienced any
delays on my NT box with any non-cygwin app (even Outlook, which relies on
my m:\ drive for my .pst file) due to the domain being down. That's what's
strange about it.  Again, i may just be missing some critical bit of
knowledge about cygwin, and i'll be happy to be enlightened.  :)

How about your HOME environment variable?  What's it set to?
