Re: Proposal for new cygwin.bat which is independent from install directory

Hmm... therefore it is also better to change the last line to:
.\bash --login -i
"%~dp0bin\bash.exe" --login -i
Changing the directory before bash is run is a security measure because
the current directory may be in DLL search path. I guess this is one
reason why the cygwin.bat file created by setup.exe also does this.
