Chuck, btw., the function setup_win_environ() in run.c can easily be

Yes, I was just looking at that. I think setup_win_environ (or its guts
before some early refactoring) pre-dated CW_SYNC_WINENV.
Before removing it, I'll have to verify some things -- like whether
that-cygwin-fork-we-don't-mention has CW_SYNC_WINENV, and how hard it
would be to add if not -- since I want run to work "over there" too.
With respect to the orginal discussion that spawned this thread, I'm
going to hold off on any changes to run/run2/cygutils until a consensus
is reached regarding:
1) what's going to happen "inside" cygwin wrt win32 cwd;
2) what new APIs are provided
3) and a project on how soon an official 1.7.7 will be released with
and then evaluate how best to modify the client apps.
