Here's another problem, even though it's a small one.

If you don't start ash, but dash, then rebaseall refuses to run with
the usual message:

  rebaseall: only ash processes are allowed during rebasing
      Exit all Cygwin processes and stop all Cygwin services.
      Execute ash from Start/Run... or a cmd or command window.
      Execute '/bin/rebaseall' from ash.

I guess the code should be changed to accept ash and dash.
