This is what I find...:
$ cd /home
Administrator TBaker tbaker
$ find TBaker
In other words, all of my files are in /home/tbaker except for the new
files, which are (the only) files in /home/TBaker.
When I upgraded to Cygwin 1.7, I now vaguely recall seeing
a message about creating new .bashrc files when I first ran the shell.
If I rename 'TBaker' to 'foobar' (to take it out of action) and re-run...:
$ procmail VERBOSE=on <test.mbox
procmail:  Tue Feb 23 14:59:34 2010
procmail: Locking "/var/spool/mail/TBaker.lock"

Evidently if it does not find /home/TBaker/.procmailrc, it does
not go looking for /home/tbaker/.procmailrc. Since my entire
file system is based on tbaker, I'd love to find a way to eradicate
the "TBaker" from my system entirely. The guy who set up my XP
installation many years ago set my login as "TBaker" but it has
never caused any practical problems until now.
