I've only been on this list a few months, but I've seen these
"find_fast_cwd" questions about twice a month so far.

Might I suggest that replacing the
"Please report this problem to the public mailing list cygwin@cygwin.com"
message in 'bash' with something like:
"Please visit https://cygwin.com/faq.html#faq.using.fixing-find_fast_cwd-warnings
for help with this issue"

This removes the need for an autoresponder and is more helpful at the
same time. Users might be reluctant to join the mailing list just to
report this and therefore they may waste their time needlessly trying
to track down the problem.
