Thanks very much this! However I still have problem with long commands. 
I start Cygwin with

     ****** cygwin.cmd:
    @echo off
    set chere_invoking=1
    D:\cygwin\bin\bash --login -i

When the command wraps into the next line then I can not edit the 
command any more. Is there something I can do about this?
