For the archives:

For a while, I had chere installed but it had mysteriously stop showing up
in the context menu.  (It wasn't clear what had changed.  Reinstalling
didn't fix it.  And it appeared that the registry entries were OK.)  I got
similar functionality via the SendTo menu.  I put a shortcut into my
SendTo folder:
The target was:
    C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe -e /bin/xhere /bin/bash.exe "%L"
It would open the containing folder for the highlighted file or folder.

BTW, chere started working again when they gave me a new box.
