Problems with shell in general.

Hello everyone,

I've just upgraded from Cygwin (it had bash v 2.02.1, I think it was b20,
i've removed it, so cannot tell for sure anymore) to the latest cygwin.
Everything appeared to install correctly.

When I run bash (using the /bin/sygnus.bat cmd file) the shell appears, and
I can run commands. However; it appears that the commands themselves are not
inheriting the PATH env var - so they can't find anything they might need in
ordr to run. For example: man fails with:

bash-2.04$ man man
/usr/bin/groff: couldn't exec troff: No such file or directory
/usr/bin/groff: couldn't exec grotty: No such file or directory
(END)

Yet I can run these two commands straight from the shell!

I've attempted to find solutions via searching the mailing lists, and
looking at the FAQ - but can't find anything related to the problem.

Can anyone help?


My env is as follows:
bash-2.04$ env
