Invoking mintty with "/bin/bash -l" is a
perfect workaround so far. Sometime later I'll look for the mintty
source code and try and figure out why mintty isn't running "bash -l"
mintty *doesn't* run "bash -l" by default. The default shortcut to
mintty created by setup.exe *asks* mintty to do that by passing mintty
the '-' parameter.
Did you create your own mintty shortcut? If so, the Target line in the
shortcut properties should read:
(Assuming Cygwin is in c:\cygwin.)
If you're still using the default shortcut, check that its Target line
is correct. If it just says "C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe" you'll get the
exact effect you've reported.
