I am still playing with the *.exe endings of the files, and I don't have a
clue whats going on.

For example I have two executables in the same directory.
(/cygdrive/c/WINNT/system32) The one which is called "notepad.exe"
works with calling "notepad" or "notepad.exe" the other one "ipconfig.exe"
only works with calling "ipconfig" but not with "ipconfig.exe".

[CYGSERV] ~ > ipconfig.exe
ipconfig.exe: Command not found.

Does anybody  have an idea what's going on?
