I tried the Bash --login option, and couldn't get *everything* to work (e.g. all
the backup Bash and Perl scripts, and everything they depend upon) under all
tested conditions -- invoking the shell script via Cygwin Bash, invoking the
shell script via a batch file invoked from cmd.exe, invoking the batch file via
Windows Explorer, invoking the batch file via a Windows shortcut, etc.. Please
test your ideas, test my solution, figure out the obvious and unobvious
differences, and post your results.
