Just want to let it be known so that it can be investigated further...
Following description *known* to apply to Windows 98SE.
There seems to a analogous problem with "startx" as far as I can
understand: I have
set SHELL=C:\COMMAND.COM /E:30720
in CONFIG.SYS, "SHELL" is copied into the bash environment...
therefore I currently have this two-minute-tweak in ~/.profile
if echo "$SHELL " | grep -i -c command.com >/dev/null
echo "\"command.com\" found in \$SHELL, \$SHELL contents removed."
... As SHELL is empty "startx" works as it should.
