How to set default startup directory for cygwin

I looked in the FAQ and could not find the answer to this question, so
am asking here.  Whenever I start cygwin, I need to cd several levels
down to the only directory that I care about when using cygwin.  How
can I get cygwin to start in this particular directory by
default...i.e., each time I start Cygwin it will be in that directory
already?  Cygwin seems to ignore the "Start In: " option in the
Windows Preferences for this application.
