Looking for the cause I found out that the Cygwin maintainers chose to
redefine the TEMP and TMP environment variables in /etc/profile
However, now I'm unable to find out
the original TEMP setting from a script.
Windows stores the environment variables in the registry, under
Manager\Environment'. You can access these through /proc/registry in
cygwin. For an example see the PRINTER setting in /etc/profile.
