Hmm.  I think this might be an artifact created by msys.bat; I don't 
use msys.bat any more, and don't see that, or even anything like it, 
in my environment; (I start MSYS bash directly, with the bash login 
command specified in a Console-2 configuration panel).  However, if I 
do start up an MSYS instance using msys.bat, I do see something very 


and unset refuses to touch it, telling me that !D: is an invalid name.

Is it causing you a problem?  It should be harmless, and you should be 
able to just ignore it.
