True. But I did not find anything else better and the instructions on
that site jibed with
what I read on the cygwin mailing list over the years. That's why I
went with it.

Against my better judgment I went and looked in Task Manager. After all I was
certain I did not start any cygwin process. And in there I found
aspell -- it was
started during Windows Emacs startup. I use Emacs to write down notes
rebaseall works as advertised.
