I don't know if the ~/.profile is run when you ssh- it is usually run
when a bash shell is started interactively (and I don't recall if ssh
starts an interactive bash shell). I have my CYGWIN variable set as a
system environment variable, because I use CYGWIN=ntsec binmode tty, and
IIRC that I need the ntsec part to be set before the inetd service
starts. I don't currently use sshd.

Windows NT must be restarted for the change to take effect.
Reboot now? [OK]
