True.  But I did not find anything else better and the instructions on
that site jibed with
what I read on the cygwin mailing list over the years.  That's why I
went with it.

Against my better judgment I went and looked in Task Manager.  After all I was
certain I did not start any cygwin process.  And in there I found
aspell -- it was
started during Windows Emacs startup.  I use Emacs to write down notes
during debugging.

rebaseall works as advertised.
