Thorsten - I agree with the last sentense, but I'm working totally in
the dark here; having *just* ash and rebaseall didn't do the trick on
the default setup I got with cygwin (it was unable to run - I forget the
err msg. Perhaps the default setup is mirror-specific? Dunno. In any
case, once I installed all, I /could/ use your initial suggestion, which
has worked out great. Many thanks!
