Wouldn't something along the lines of

     cd /cygdrive/c/apps/bin && nohup ./ &

be a lot safer if you were worried about the directory not being there?

Working that into the one-liner is left as an exercise for the student...

   Health Care _is_ a right - the government has no business keeping
   you from getting it. But forcing somebody else to pay for your
   health care at gunpoint (i.e. through taxation) is _not_ a right.
