This is what I had to do with this:
c:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe -c "cd '%1';exec /usr/bin/bash --rcfile
I had to create that separate rcfile since the /etc/profile file has a cd
$HOME in it - i removed that from this one to keep it from cd'ing to
/home/administrator every time, and I can still start up bash the normal
way (ie the Cygwin icon) and be taken to my home dir.
Thanks for the suggestion - it steered me in the right way!!
