There seems to be some odd behavior with the HOME directory. The
default profile scripts are suppose to initially set this directory up,
but they seem to be failing. I tried this on several different systems
(Windows 2000 and Windows XP), but I run into problems. I then created
a HOME environment variable in the cygwin.bat file, but this did not
work. It one case, doing a cd $HOME only goes to the root of the C:
drive, even when a C:\CYGWIN\HOME exists or doesn't exist.
What's going on? How do I get a functional home directory system
PS - I did not find adequate info on this in the FAQ, nor in any
