Ah, then you don't need to add c:\cygwin\bin to the global path. Great
-- I really didn't want to get into having setup.exe muck with autoexec.
So, you want something like:
c:\cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe -display :0 -fn "Lucida Console-12" -fg #202020
-bg #000000 -sl 2000 -e /bin/bash --login -i
Anybody want to provide a patch for setup.exe so that it adds to
cygwin.bat a REM commented line similar to the above?
