I have a BAT file that calls a bash script that generates the

cygwin warning:

   CYGWIN environment variable option "nodosfilewarning" turns off this warning.
   Consult the user's guide for more details about POSIX paths:

If I rerun the script, I don't get the message a second time, which
makes debugging the problem a problem. How can I have this message
show up on every invocation? I tried closing all Cygwin processes
and tried setting CYGWIN=dosfilewarning, but it seemed to want
something more.

It's not designed to do that.  It will show up once per Cygwin DLL
session only.  If you want to see something different, you'll need
to patch the Cygwin source.
