That's weird.  I just had a look into the rlogind sources and
actually started a rlogin session from my Linux box to the Windows
box.  rlogind doesn't influence the environment except for the
setting of $TERM.  All other env.vars including $CYGWIN are inherited
from the parent process, inetd.  Inetd has the environment which
is set in the system environment plus user env. if started under
another user account as SYSTEM.
