Eh? Just out of curiosity; is this anything else than:

	$ cygstart DIRECTORY


	$ cygstart .
	$ cygstart /
	$ cygstart '<any valid windows DIR path>'

for the current dir, cygwin root and Win/Dos style path... ?

 cygstart /cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/COMMAND/
will launch COMMAND.COM if you have Win98 installed in C:\WINDOWS\
(Not explorer on the directory .../COMMAND/ )

I believe this is a side effect of current *stat() implementation, isn't it?
