I noticed that too...

That's precisely why I suggested unsetting TEMP and TMP in /etc/profile. Then things should work as in linux.
Indeed. But a question emerges: what does it happen if one starts a
Windows application, which needs TEMP or TMP, from Cygwin?
For example, GSview (*) can view ps.bz2 or pdf.bz2 files uncompressing
them into $TEMP, so it fails if TEMP is not defined, and
$ gsview foo.pdf.bz2
This is only an example of problems which can emerge unsetting TEMP.
