I found the problem. It were wrong parameters on the BASH and PATH
parameter in the profile.

The solution was:
  1.  set > myprof2   {in CYGWIN}
  2.  in NT, compare the paramters with the old one 
  3.  change the BASH value in "home-directory CYGWIN"/bin,
      by typing in CYGWIN: 
       BASH="home-directory CYGWIN"/bin
  4.  make the PATH value of the "home-directory CYGWIN"/bin drive dependent,
      by typing in CYGWIN:
       PATH=//"drive-without-colon"/"home-directory CYGWIN"/bin:+"rest"
Now everything works fine again.
