I usually start the non-cygwin gvim.exe via the rxvt cygwin console
doing something like:
% gvim filename.py
the problem is that, when inside GVIM, when I do:
:py print os.environ['PATH']
I see a lot of cygwin paths which messes up the Python path that GVIM
wants to use. Is there a way to start gvim.exe so that this doesn't
happen? Note that I can avoid this situation by starting GVIM in a plain
vanilla CMD window, or from a standard window shortcut, instead of using
the cygwin terminal.
This is on Windows XP Professional Ver 5.1 Build 2600 Service Pack 3.
