A $ in my path...

Hello all,

I have just had my work system set upto use cygwin. Unfortunately, my home
directory and all other directories which are mapped to network stores and
properly backed up have a $ sign in their path:

$ pwd

This $ sign causes problems everywhere - with latex, with svn, with anything
that uses ~ to refer to my home directory, because it expands to ...$/...
and bash tries to parse the $/ as a variable.

Does anyone know how to change this or hide this? It may only be a problem
with pwd and applications which use this because, e.g., when I'm in / (which
is C:\cygwin) and I type pwd I get "/" as the result.

Thanks heaps for your help!
