This is my situation. I have my Y: drive mapped to a Linux Samba server. See more details below

Not doing this.

Sadly that is not my experience.

I am right clicking on a directory name in either (tried both) the LH or RH pane of an explore.exe window. In both cases what happens
Is that a new window is launched (good) with an initial title of the form "/bin/xhere /bin/bash.exe Y:\apps". After a brief pause, I see
"Starting /bin/bash.exe", than another brief pause and the window title changes to "/cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/system32" and I get a
Bash command prompt. The PWD is just what the title indicates (i.e. .../system32)
> You may be able to figure out what's going on by adding a few echos to /bin/xhere
That a good tip. I didn't realize it was a script. I'll try that.
P.S. I'm also having trouble figuring out how to post replies to what I see on the web archive. I did NOT get any email reply to my prior post, it just showed up on the web archive (that was good). I carefully checked my spam quarantine areas several times to be sure. Actually my first post on this topic was my second attempt to post. I had to add myself to the white-list which I didn't notice at first since the white-list suggestion was stuck in MY stupid stupid Outlook spam filter (Thanks so much Outlook).
In any event, I have cobbled together something that resembles a reply to an email that I have really scraped off the web archive. That seems awfully complicated. Surely I'm missing something. But I just cannot see the "Reply" button on the archive. Is this like when my wife says, its right there and points to it and yep, its really right there? :-(
