I haven't noticed that behaviour, but when I run bash as the shell it
doesn't know about pwd nor a number of aliasses I defined.  I have
ntemacs start bash as an interactive login shell by setting
explicit-shell-file-name to "bash" and explicit-bash-args to the list
("--login" "-i").  All this with cygwin 1.3.2-1, bash 2.05.6, and
ntemacs 20.7.3.  Any ideas?
