For me, the above method always starts in the $HOME directory (due to
/etc/profile action). I have to use:
C:\cygwin\bin\env.exe CHERE_INVOKING=1 /bin/bash --login -i
with the wanted directory in "Start in".
I guess you have made changes in /etc/profile if it works for you.
See the "Re: Window shortcut to launch a Mintty login bash on a given
directory" thread with Andy's explanations.
