Is there a difference between "bash --login" and "bash --login -i"

The default Cygwin.bat uses "bash --login -I" while the default  rxvt-native shortcut uses "bash --login".

I do not see any difference in the behaviour of the bash shell in either case.

Is there any?

If not, why keep -i in Cygwin.bat?

Best regards,
