It appears to be the other if-condition (tty=conin) that is causing that
line to run when I bring up the Cygwin shell window.
In truth I hadn't seen this problem until recently. This broke for me
because I had to install Rational Rose. Believe it or not, this product
sets TERM=nutc in your global Windows environment. While I personally
find this a poor implementation on Rational's part, I am stuck with that
if I want the Rational suite of development products to work. That
variable affects Cygwin tcsh, so the /etc/csh.login change really does
