Good. Now perhaps you could help me solve mine ... ;-)

The path in cygwin was not setup correctly cygwin-shell (which I ought
to rename). I have tried to fix that, but could not get it entirely
correct (probably a cygwin bug, I have asked them right now).

Could you please try the attached version of w32shell.el and see if
that works for you without you having to change the paths yourself?
