The problem here is the \r\n line endings you must remove the \r.

cp .bashrc junk
tr -d "\r" < junk > .bashrc
rm junk

Note: you must do this for all scripts and source code.

How do you instantiate both the original bash and the coolview bash?  
The cygwin.dll replacement should cause the original bash to abort as 
there existed a misspelled function name for which bash was modifed to 
use.  Unless of course Sergey has changed things recently to allow it.
