Re: paths in xp and 2000

I just verified that this bug occurs only when you UPGRADE from
win98/me to 2000/xp. bash correctly inherit the path variable in clean
2000 installation.
So my guess is that bash is somehow reading something from leftover
win98/me files and getting confused.

Any suggestions; I have removed autoexec.bat and that did not help
