I have looked all through the list archives and on google groups, but this
problem does not seem to be listed.
I am running Windows 2000, logging in to an NT domain (not sure if any of
this matters). When I run the Cygwin shortcut, it logs in OK, but does not
run the .bashrc (I have a few aliases, that's how I can tell). I need to
run "bash" again to get it to load .bashrc.
Then, when I log out, I need to logout twice, to get rid of both shells.
BTW, the $HOME is /home/Administrator, not /home/myloginname, which does
not seem to be an issue, as this is the way is was on other
machines. Additionally, when I do run the "bash" command the second time,
the $HOME is still the same.
I have run/am running Cygwin on NT4, and W98 machines, none of which have
had this problem.
The /etc/shells file:
The cygwin.bat file:
chdir \cygwin\bin #note: I have also tried this with c:\cygwin\bin
bash --login -i
