Incomplete environ when running MinGW apps?

Hmm. I think you're right; I need to give up looking for a robust way to 
do this. I think I'll:

    (system(uname) looks sane) &&
    (system(cygpath -m /bin/sh) returns success))
      use CreateProcess with /bin/sh path returned by cygpath;
      use CreateProcess with cmd.exe /c

And I'll need to test it when run from a DOS box, with Cygwin's bin in 
the path.

That should keep most of the people happy most of the time. Who can ask 
for more from Windows?  :)
