I'm a total virgin at this. I'm afraid I need help, professional help!
Right now I'm looking at http://cygwin.com/setup.html, as well as what ships
with the binary and source distribution of the current cygwin bash.
Looks like bash2.x install in /usr/bin while bash3.x installs in
/usr/local/bin. Is that ok?
As to Andrew Schulman's complaint about the "extra-space-after-the-prompt"
bug (http://sources.redhat.com/ml/cygwin/2005-04/msg00325.html, first
reported at http://mail-index.netbsd.org/pkgsrc-bugs/2005/03/25/0002.html),
I believe to have fixed the problem. How do I about getting this fix (if we
conclude that it is indeed working) back into mainstream bash?
