Although I normally defer to Dave, who is far more knowledgeable in
these things than I am, I am surprised that he suggests the -i option
that makes bash interactive.  If the shortcut does not work the way you
want, try dropping it.  (The scripts that I run from Windows shortcuts
work fine with --login -c without the -i.
