Yeah, I need to add even more runtime-debugging in run-1.0 and put out a 
test release, so we can figure out what's going wrong there.

1. create an XML file describing the program you want to launch. Here's 
an example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="us-ascii"?>
   <SelfOptions />
     <Environment />
     <Target filename="/usr/bin/bash.exe" startin="/usr/bin">
       <Arg>-l -c /usr/bin/startxwin.exe</Arg>

2. Make sure all the arguments you want to pass to the target program 
are represented in (the|one of the) <Arg /> elements.  Be sure that all 
sequences of two '-' characters are replaced by -!- (e.g. -!-login for 
--login, etc).

3. Create a shortcut with the following target:
C:\cygwin\bin\run2.exe /cygwin/path/to/your/xml/file

Enjoy.  (Try

C:\cygwin\bin\run2.exe --debug=3 --notty /cygwin/path/to/your/xml/file

if it doesn't work).
