Dear Sir/Madam,
When setting up a new user under Windows 8.1 and using a microsoft account, I was forced to use a Christian and Sir Name.
When running mintty.exe (from the icon put on the desktop when installing cygwin) for the first time, it puts a space in the home path for this user.
When I then go to compile a program, it fails because of the space in the pathname.
Did I miss something?
