That works fine. But the problem is when I execute xdvi from emacs. Then
this gets inserted:
if I could just get emacs to only type /home/test/test.dvi it would work.
But I think it is wierd that xfig accepts the full path while xdvi only
accept the path excluding c:/cygwin, but maybe its a bug in xdvi.
