Seems to work for run2.exe.  Stay tuned for checkX.exe and run.exe.

I've uploaded run2-0.4.2-2 as a test release for both 32bit and 64bit.

However, run is more complicated; most of the application code is
actually in WinMain.  I've been meaning to refactor it more along the
lines of run2, but never got around to it. Looks like I now have a
reason...but it'll take a bit longer to do, and I won't really have time
to address it until Saturday.

Until then, users of run.exe affected by this problem can use run2.exe (today's new version) with almost the same effect:

1. create an XML file describing the program you want to launch. Here's an example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="us-ascii"?>
  <SelfOptions />
    <Environment />
    <Target filename="/usr/bin/mintty.exe" startin="~">
      <Arg>-e /bin/bash -!-login</Arg>

2. Make sure all the arguments you want to pass to the target program are represented in (the|one of the) <Arg /> elements. Be sure that all sequences of two '-' characters are replaced by -!- (see -!-login, above).

3. Create a shortcut with the following target:
C:\cygwin\bin\run2.exe /cygwin/path/to/your/xml/file

Enjoy.  (Try

C:\cygwin\bin\run2.exe --debug=3 --notty /cygwin/path/to/your/xml/file

if it doesn't work).
