Thanks, I created a shortcut with the above info and it is close.

It starts and it finds my shell and my config files.  But $SHELL is empty
and the terminal has no clue as to where any of the Cygwin programs are.
The PATH that is created before any of my files are read contains info on
Windblows program locations, but nowhere is /usr/bin or /bin, or any of the
long path names to the Cygwin binaries.

When started from the cygwin.bat file, "/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:" prefice
the Windblows paths.  So, a PATH that includes the needed info to the cygwin
binaries is built when BAT is run, but not when mintty is started.

Is there a reason why Cygwin is not building a PATH with the needed info?

I've modified my environment resource file to look for $TERM == xterm and
added the needed Cygwin paths.

BTW, what is with white text on a black background?  UGGHH!  :-)
