Hmm, it seems that my messages aren't getting through since I mentioned
how to create such a shortcut just a little while ago, but I'll try one
more time...

Create a shortcut that starts in the bin directory of your Cygwin
installation.  Have it run:

mintty -

That's it as far as I remember.  Of course, the easy way is to just run
setup.exe again and let it create the shortcut for you.  Then you know
you have the right settings.

Mintty doesn't exist under Solaris or Linux, only Cygwin.
