Having working with Clearcase software since ~94 I can insure you that 
Clearcase is 1) not a vendor (it's a product from IBM/Rational now, 
Rational Software before, Pure Software before and Atria initially, 
derived from Apollo Workstation's DSEE) and 2) does not distribute any 
copies of Cygwin anything...

When I said "my Views directory" I meant a directory named Views that I 
created and shared to put my Clearcase views in. It isn't even a 
directory that comes as a result of installing Clearcase nor is it in 
the PATH.

No, something else happened... I assure you.
