- Subject: occasional problem: .bash_profile permission denied
I configured my system so that it automatically starts Cygwin
during boot time via the Windows autostart feature, by using
startxwin and Cygwin/X to start several xterm and rxvt terminals,
and also to start one bash shell in plain Cygwin (outside X).
Occasionally, one or two of the shells started that way complain
bash: /cygdrive/h/.bash_profile: Permission denied
Of course there is nothing wrong with my .bash_profile, and if I
then do a manual
in these shells, everything works manually.
It is certainly not a X specific issue, because it had occured already
in the plain Cygwin shell too.
My first idea was that perhaps that it could be a race condition between
Windows starting the Autostart applications and mounting the network
because my $HOME is on a network drive. But this would not explain the
following: When I start several xterm's from my startxwin.bat, it
sometimes that the "permission denied" error occurs on one of the
started *later*, while the earlier started ones don't have this problem.
Any idea what could be wrong here?
