When I first installed CygWin32, the directory I installed it in was
under D:\Program Files. I found that to run shell scripts properly,
I had to uninstall Cygwin32 and reinstall it under a directory which
had no spaces in its pathname, otherwise shells interpreting scripts
could never be executed (it tries to run Files/....).
