Greetings, Angelo Graziosi!

>> This is a bugfix update.

> After this update, my Cygwin installation is basically broken. I have 
> several links on desktop to start Cygwin applications and they don't 
> work any more. The links target sound like these:

>    C:\cygwin-2\bin\run.exe bash -l -c 'rm -rf /tmp/{.X*,dbus*,orbit*,*}; 
> XWin -nowgl -multiwindow -clipboard -silent-dup-error 2>/dev/null &'

What "run.exe" does here? Could you please explain?

> C:\cygwin-2\bin\run.exe bash -l -c 'GSETTINGS_BACKEND=memory emacs 
> -display 2>/dev/null &'

> C:\cygwin-2\bin\run.exe bash -l -c 'urxvt-X -display -ls 
-e /bin/bash -l 2>>/dev/null &'

> etc...

> They worked fine for years without any problem. Reverting the update to 
> previous version 1.2 of "run" allow the applications to work fine again.

> Here is on Win XP 32b with Cygwin 32b, 1.7.22.
