The calls to locale and tzset in profile.d still are not fully
qualified. I always thought fully qualified paths were appropriate
for system wide scripts since one cannot depend on PATH being
set up correctly. In any case, both with the previous release
of base-files and this one, if you does something like
C:\cygwin\bin\mintty -u -
In a shortcut, the /bin isn't in PATH so the calls to locale
and tzset fail. make those calls "/bin/locale" and "/bin/tzset"
(fully qualified) fixes that problem and eliminates the need
for PATH to be relied upon in system wide scripts.
