	Didn't delete it...
it was all non-functional....bash, everything dumped core or stacktraced
-- symptoms of needing a rebase, but that didn't fix everything. ..

Got bash to run but then still no X, and bash wouldn't run under
'Console' (only under native win cmd-like shell).

	You wanna put money on fault?  Gee, Console worked w/old
bash, installed, new bash, no longer works -- what changed?

	X used to work, update?  Not.  Fault?
	I wasn't pointing finger, BTW, I know my config isn't
standard...BUT...that doesn't mean an update should through everything
into chaos...
