I'd like to have a command line that will run bash inside rxvt, both as
a login shell (so I get all my paths and profile) and in a specific
directory. I know how to get it to a specific directory, and I know how
to make it a login shell, but I can't figure out how to get both.
If I use this:
C:\cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe -ls -cd "path" -e /usr/bin/bash -l
I get a login shell, but at my home dir, not at the specified path.
If I remove the last "-l", it goes to the correct directory, but it
didn't appear to load my profile (PATH isn't correct, for instance).
