But there is a way to make a program run even before Windows Login,
(VNC does it). Here is the VNC registry (W95, it works):

"WinVNC"="\"C:\\VNC\\WINVNC.EXE\" -service"

May be I did something wrong before, or a boot was required. Today it 
worked like a charm without any modification. It was successful in
1.1.5-7 and 1.1.6-1 (which I installed today).

I had one complaint (remember - W95) The user who logs in (with his/her
name and password) is ignored and the UID s/he gets is MINE. This may 
be irrelevant for file ownership but it is very important when this user
do an rlogin to another (trusted) machine. There should be a way that
Cygwin will has its own UID independent of the Windoz OS.

Any work is done NFS mount (like the mountd of Linux ?) that will work
just inside Cygwin (unseen by Windoz) ?
