I think the issue is interactions between the Cygwin installer and TS in
application mode, NOT anything with Windows 2003 per se.

Running setup in TS application mode on Win2K, I got the exact same
results as on Windows 2003.  After setup, when you launch the bash
environment, you immediately land at a bare bash prompt, like this

The environment most obviously is NOT initialized.  In fact, the global
system variables did not change at all before/after install, and when I
echo out my path in bash, I get this:

bash-2.05b$ $PATH
em:/cygdrive/c/Program: No such file or directory

The "No such file or directory' is normal for parsing path elements with
embedded spaces on XP as well, but the critical thing is that the usual


does NOT get tacked onto the head of the path.

Anyone know
