Variation on: regular user, bash cannot find /tmp

It did help and worked; thanks. Indeed, I had installed it in different
places the two times.
For the archives, a couple clarifications on the instructions. "From a
command prompt" means "from a windows command prompt" not a cygwin/bash
command prompt. In the `command` on my windows box, semi-colon does not
separate commands, so the cd and the .\<program> need to happen as separate
I haven't looked at the output of cygcheck yet; after doing the umount I
tried what had failed and it seems to work.

You probably installed into a different directory for that user, and you
have stale user mounts. Unfortunately, you have not attached the output
of "cygcheck -svr" from the failing user (which you could have gotten via
"cd c:\cygwin\bin; .\cygcheck -svr" from a command prompt). Just unmount
all user mounts as the problem user: "cd c:\cygwin\bin; .\umount -U".
