Thanks for the reminder -- cron was another issue/ test case that drove me

I make no claim that my solution was "correct", "best", "ideal", "proper",
"sexy", etc.; it just works AFAIC. Cygwin changes on a regular basis, causing
breakage. So, I make, keep, and run images of Cygwin installations that seem to
work, and only upgrade/update when I absolutely have to. I'm a Cygwin user, not
a Cygwin developer; I have no desire to become the later (and this thread is
reminding me why). If you feel compelled to research and explain the problems
with the code I posted and provide a "better" answer, go for it.

I didn't ask for help debugging my environment, TYVM. I was attempting to help
zip184 with a problem I've faced in the past, and it turned into a huge exercise
in negative reinforcement that will dissuade me from posting on this list again
