cygstart, mutt or mailcap?


This is what my .mailcap looks like:

text/html; lynx -dump %s; copiousoutput; nametemplate=3D%s.html
Application/MSWORD;      cygstart %s; copiousoutput; 
Application/VND.MS-EXCEL; cygstart %s; copiousoutput;
Application/PDF; cygstart %s; copiousoutput;
Application/; cygstart %s; copiousoutput;
Application/MSEXCEL; cygstart %s; copiousoutput;
Application/octet-stream; cygstart %s; copiousoutput;

I'm using mutt 1.4i. When I try to view a word doc it lauches fine but in the middle
of doing other things like reading email or doing something else my word doc seems
to get corrupted.

However I don't see this problem if I save the file and *then* run cygstart or directly
open it in word.

BTW here is where the tmp file is created:

[asimha at asimha-w2k02 ~]$ ls -lt /tmp
ls: /tmp/mutt-asimha-w2k02-1736-194: No such file or directory
ls: /tmp/mutt-asimha-w2k02-1736-33: No such file or directory
total 4550

[asimha at asimha-w2k02 ~]$ 

Any clues here?
