This is probably a stupid question but I cannot find an answer in the FAQ.
When I exit Windows using either "turn off computer" or "log off", the
windows where I am running cygwin bash does not exit. Instead a dialog
box with the title "End program - <whatever>" and with the options
or "Cancel" is displayed, blocking the shutdown/log-off.
What configuration am I missing ?
Are you, perhaps, running bash under rxvt? Do you occasionally kill rxvt
bash running windows with the "X" (close) button? If so then are you
aware that rxvt does not properly clean up those bash processes and that
that is the cause of your dialog box. If you always "exit" your
rxvt/bash windows and never "X" (close) them then you will not see this
