Tried looking in
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths"
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths"
? They might have bash.exe in them. Also, what happens if you create a symlink
mybash.exe, that points to cygwin bash.exe? Would mybash.exe invoke the right bash?
