One system works, the other doesn't

Forgive me if this is a repost.  I tried to send this to the Cygwin list 
the other day, but I never saw it appear.

I have two systems running Cygwin: an NT4 (home) machine and a XP
(work) machine.  I've tried to make them as similar as possible, but
there are apparently some differences that elude me.  Specifically:

1) At home (NT4), .bashrc is automatically run when I fire up a bash
   shell.  At work, it doesn't, though I can manually run it with
   source ~/.bashrc

2) At home (NT4), the simple perl script I use to filter mutt messages
   before displaying them works beautifully.  At work (XP), the
   messages all display with ^M at the end of every line.  (This is
   recent ... since I just re-installed Cygwin on this machine.  It
   *used* to work.)

3) At home, mutt has no trouble telling me which MH mailboxes contain
   new mail.  At work, however, this function of mutt doesn't work.
   Once I open the mailbox, the new messages are correctly marked with
   'N', but when I attempt to change mailboxes, mutt doesn't prompt me
   as it should.

I've compared the output from 'cygcheck -s -v' on the two machines,
but I didn't see anything obvious.  (The work machine has more
packages installed.)  Can anyone suggest what might be responsible for
these quirks?

Currently, the NT4 (home) machine is working *better* than the XP
(work) one.  Since I'll be upgrading the home machine to a new box
running XP shortly, I'd like to find out what's going on.

Thanks very much!
