For some reason, I can't get bash to automatically change to my home
directory when it starts. The HOME envar is set to the Unixoid path, ie.
/home/itz. It has to be that way because I have other Cygwin-linked
programs (XEmacs is one) that I want to be able to start independently,
before bash has run.
Yes, I give bash the --login and -i flags. It makes no difference. Unless
I explicitly cd to the home directory from the batch wrapper, the directory
I end up in is either the bin directory where bash executable is located,
or some weird ....\Desktop\itz place (the latter seems to happen when I
start it through a Windows "shortcut").
As a consequence, my .profile is not being sourced, etc. etc.
Any ideas appreciated.
