I've tested launcing `fish -l -i` from wincmd. A lot of errors shown.
I think `fish` is not yet optimized to be `default shell` for cygwin.
There are still more works to be done to make it usable as cygwin login
For a quick comparison, `bash -l -i` and `zsh -l -i` works fine, even
when launched via wincmd. The PATH environment is set up correctly with
them, so that there is no problem to use bash and zsh for cygwin login
