Based on your two snippets , I have upgraded cyg-wrapper.sh to
support a new option: --fork=2.
The big difference with the two other solutions: it can follow symbolic
links ; a very important feature for people like that have a lot
of symbolic links. :)
It also has some other interresting features: it is not restricted to
gvim, it can transform/unset CYGWIN environment variables, etc.
 Actually I've used cygstart as Igor did in order to make gvim (or
anything else) session not owned by the shell. Oddly I wasn't able to
make disown work.
