  Are there really no error messages of any kind coming out when you start up
a bash shell?

  Have you rebooted since you ran setup.exe?  Are you completely sure there
were no cygwin processes running, perhaps as services, at the time?  Failing
that, do you perhaps have CRLF line-endings in one of the startup scripts?

  Well, that's empty on older versions anyway.  In case of doubt, just re-run
setup.exe, select "Install from local directory" and click all the way through
with the default options; that'll make sure everything is properly installed
and consistent.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
