You're welcome. I'm glad my cygdrop tool is useful here.
Meantime I noticed one difference: If Cygwin shell started normally from
explorer, UAC-Virtualization is effective. This is not the case if the
shell is started through cygdrop. Should not make much difference for
the typical use cases of Cygwin which normally do not change files below
$PROGRAMFILES or $WINDIR.
