Nevermind.  I found it.  It was when I went to Fedora 25 and a 5.x version
of Zsh that the issue arose.  I dug thru some e-mail and it was via the
Zsh mail list that I was provided with the answer.  It was Jun 14, 2017,
that I updated the .zshrc file.  Brain got fuzzy over the three years.

I added the changes to the cygwin version of my .zshrc file and it worked.
