Sorry: it's /usr/X11R6/bin/run.exe, which was recommended by some as the
best way to launch rxvt from the cygwin.bat file. AFAIK it's meant to avoid
having the (irritating) command window pop-up before the rxvt window
appears. However, it fails to achieve that and I'd never (until just now)
taken it out of my cygwin.bat file.

I've also just had find fall over in the do_exit handling, something to do
with stack error checking? Anyhow, I junked the core file accidently so I've
lost that one.
