I just moved the cygwin installation. The "last" peculiarity I ran into
was that the login shell, with the shortcut "F:\cygwin64\bin\mintty.exe

instead of /usr/bin/bash
I tracked this down the the windows setting for SHELL, the one you get
to from windows' SystemProperties dialog, which was
C:/cygwin64/bin/bash. The /etc/passwd file specifies /bin/bash.
I don't think cygwin sets the Windows SHELL variable in the
registry. My SHELL value in the System section is 'C:/Bin/Bash.exe',
which isn't a cygwin-looking path (looks like something I set). Are you
sure you didn't set it in the past sometime?
