Use the following procedure:
1. Install bash as a service via cygrunsrv.
2. Allow it to interact with the desktop.
3. Start the service.
4. Execute "echo $PATH" when it pops up.

However, the above seems to indicate that /bin is appended.
I guess that the above procedure may have to be used after all or the
source code consulted to resolve this issue....
