The major problem is that $shell and $SHELL are now getting set to
/tmp/install/usr/bin/tcsh instead of /usr/bin/tcsh. This is causing the
shell to fail, say in an xterm, trying to exec $SHELL.
I verified that this problem resides in the executable rather than my
configuration files by examining it with strings.
There is another problem which is not new to this release, but I feel
should be corrected. The default /etc/csh.login should have two lines
changed in this manner:
set path=( /usr/local/bin /usr/bin /bin $path:q )
The $path:q preserves spaces in spacey MS pathnames. Right now path
elements like "Program Files" are resulting in multiple bad entries from
the inherited Windows path. This hurts performance.
The current setting of "linux" is not correct for the Cygwin shell window,
