Re: python and cygwin

OK, I see,
However, it seems as if I can execute the win32 python interpreter from
within the cygwin bash shell, and it seems to work as long the cygwin path
come into play, which is "unfortunate".

I thought the idea with cygwin was to provide unix tools working under
windows, not to make windows into unix/posix? Now it looks as if I need to
have two sets of python running, one for cygwin and one for windows, and
both are running in windows! It is something fishy with that I think..?
