Why is the above "/c/cygwin/startup.py" and not "/startup.py" as you

I cannot explain the above behavior.
FWIW, the following works:
$ cat /tmp/.pythonrc.py
print '*** startup executed ***'
$ PYTHONSTARTUP=/tmp/.pythonrc.py python
Python 2.3 (#1, Aug 5 2003, 09:49:11)
[GCC 3.2 20020927 (prerelease)] on cygwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
*** startup executed ***
BTW, I just noticed that you are using Cygwin Python 2.3-1. Does 2.3-2
work any better? The two packages are identical except for 32- vs.
64-bit, but maybe this is the difference?
