Your home/$USER directory? I remember that when I had no such directory
created by cygwin (on w2k with SP3 & normal user rights) windowmaker could
not start. Then after getting thru faq and cygwin mailing lists I came to
conclusion to create in my cygwin environment /home/$USER directory and set
is as my $HOME. Try this.
