Failure in merging win-env vars into post-'login'...

BTW, FWIW, when I 'remotely login', now, and try to use
win-env vars:

/Users/law.Bliss/bin/dumphive: line 11: USERPROFILE: unbound variable

more than one of my scripts and other programs fail due to
USERPROFILE being null.

Is it possible to preserve that?

maybe a file in /etc/ could specify which variables to
preserve (or set) on login.

I often launch windows programs from my bash shell --
especially things like explorer, or windows gvim...

(generally I use 'bash' as my win-shell.  Last I tried,
it worked in comspec as well, but I decided to keep that
pointing at cmd since if bash is broken, I might
have problems launching a shell to fix it.
