cygwin 1.1.6 bug on Windows 2000

The bit map image shows a path of "c:\odsdev\bin\i386\tcsh"

This does not look like a cygwin path.  If this is a 16 bit version of tcsh, that could explain the problem and you will need to change to a cygwin version of tcsh to fix
it.  You should check the cygwin web site for links.
