Re: path problems when logged in through ssh

Like I said in my original post, d:/cygwin/bin *IS* in my system path,
but when I try to run something through ssh, it doesn't use the sytem

I did find the solution, which is to put /bin in my .bashrc.  I did not have
it there because it was never needed before.  For some reason, now it is.
