Maybe so, but you also got a CR lineending in there, which is why the error
message wrote over itself in that characteristic way. You probably edited
/etc/profile or one of the other scripts using notepad/wordpad/similar.
To figure out exactly where, open a cmd.exe shell, cd into your cygwin bin
dir, and run "bash --login -i -x". You should be able to follow what's
getting invoked when that way; then just run d2u on the offending script.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
