Alex, the output of "cygcheck -svr" attached, as per
<> should be informative in this case.
Is it possible that Terminal Services gives you a temporary registry that
it throws out upon exiting?

Andy, FYI, the "/usr/bin:/bin:" is prepended to the PATH by the default
/etc/profile, so bash may not be finding /etc (IOW, I concur on your
mount guess).
