I've just had another poke at this. So far I can only say that
$ command1 `command2`
seems to be a problem where command1 is external and command2 is a
builtin. For example,
$ ls `echo 1`
$ diff `dirs`
$ ls `cat 1`
This is definately OK on cygwin 1.1.4. It's 1.1.5-7 that seems to be the
problem (that's on Win2000 SP1). I've played with the path, PS1 setting,
aliases etc. etc. and nothing seems to affect it.
