Fish shell: cygwin.conf hiding user paths




The file /etc/fish/conf.d/cygwin.conf has the following section:

# Prepend system directories to PATH
for p in /bin /usr/local/bin
        if not contains $p $PATH
                set -x PATH $p $PATH
        end
end

The issue with this is that these get prepended before
fish_user_paths, essentially clobbering any user overrides. It also
swaps round if the user edits fish_user_paths, or when nesting fish,
which is surprising and unhelpful behaviour.

A simple fix to the behaviour would be to run __fish_reconstruct_path
after, like so:

# Prepend system directories to PATH
for p in /bin /usr/local/bin
        if not contains $p $PATH
                set -x PATH $p $PATH
        end
end
__fish_reconstruct_path

Which works just fine for me.
