Thanks, Bob. That's the way I expected it to work.
I was just unsure of whether there was something
cygwin-specific, as it seems strange that something
like HOSTNAME is not marked for export at the time
that it is set. I'll stick it into ~/.bashrc.
I've always used the "set -a" shell builtin command in my .bashrc or
.kshrc files which then exports all environment variables to all spawned
