Actually, having reviewed my patches, it's only patch based on AST - the $SHELL patch.
I'm imitating the AST function pathshell() there.
Now, since Corinna has made clear to me that there's no real super user on Cygwin, half of the patch is nonsense anyway and can be removed.
Two other patches mimic UWIN behavior. That can not be a problem, since Cygwin also has adopted the UWIN symbolics links.
I found something interesting in the archives, see http://www.cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2001-02/msg00417.html. He didn't need a release from AT&T, did he?
