'system cannot find the file specified' when starting bash


I've made a fresh install of Cygwin to Windows XP machine. While
starting bash I get following error message:

"Error (2): The system cannot find the file specified."

Bash starts successfully but the error msg is a little bit annoying.
It seems the reason is that Cygwin assumes I have printers in the
system. /etc/profile runs regtool which prints the above error
message if key cannot be found:

`regtool get '\user\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\Device'

The error message disappears if adding "-q" (quiet) to parameters.

This might be a FAQ but I didn't succeed in finding it on the net.
If not done already maybe it could be fixed in the next release?

I'm running:
CYGWIN_NT-5.1 desktop 1.3.22(0.78/3/2) 2003-03-18 09:20 i686 unknown unknown Cygwin
