The purpose of `chere` is, quoting from its help,
to "to right click a folder in Windows Explorer and
open a Cygwin shell *in that folder*."
Your `.bash_profile` should run in whatever directory
it is called from. To refer to a file in your $HOME,
explicitly do so (by prefixing any path with $HOME).

What kind of domains do you mean?

How come you have differing values for $HOME in some contexts?
Do you have two separate Cygwin installs?
Two home directories?
Where does the "chere" prompt stem from?
