I thought about this. The "autorun.exe" program could wait for the
rxvt.exe to terminate and then unmount everything.

But what if you'd started up some detached Cygwin processes from
within the session? Unmounting everything might make them choke.

Autorun.exe could get /really/ clever hooking into Windows and sit in
the taskbar until it spots when the last instance of cygwin1.dll is
unloaded before unmounting everything, unlocking the CD-ROM eject
mechanism and exiting. I'm not going to write it for you, though. ;-)
