(Sorry, I'm not subscribed to the mailing list,
so I am answering my own mail).
I'm not a cygwin expert and rather use Linux at home and
elsewhere, so I don't know why on cygwin /usr/bin is the
same as /bin and /usr/lib the same as /lib, but I do not
Anyway, /usr/bin/tcsh, /bin/csh and /usr/bin/csh point to
the same executable, namely /bin/tcsh.exe:
% ls -l /bin/*csh.exe /usr/bin/*csh.exe
lrwxrwxrwx 1 hanlauf mkgroup-l-d 8 Aug 3 2005 /bin/csh.exe -> tcsh.exe
-rwxrwx---+ 1 hanlauf mkgroup-l-d 301056 Aug 2 2005 /bin/tcsh.exe
lrwxrwxrwx 1 hanlauf mkgroup-l-d 8 Aug 3 2005 /usr/bin/csh.exe -> tcsh.exe
-rwxrwx---+ 1 hanlauf mkgroup-l-d 301056 Aug 2 2005 /usr/bin/tcsh.exe
It really does not matter whether I say
% csh ./cygwin-csh-bug
% tcsh ./cygwin-csh-bug
% bash ./cygwin-csh-bug
% ksh ./cygwin-csh-bug
works as expected.
It's only (t)csh
Furthermore, it works after "upgrade" to cygwin1.dll-1.5.20-1
which has the other problems.
