I've already got a similar shortcut by creating a shortcut to
runemacs.exe on my desktop.  This script starts gnuclient.exe where
mine doesn't -- I consider that a bonus.

But I was hoping that I could accomplish this sequence

1. double-click icon to launch launch cygwin bash (to pick up
   .profile_bash, especially for PATH)

2. bash would launch runemacs.exe (and as a bonus gnuclient)

What this does for me is that it picks up the environment from my bash
instead of Win2000.  I think this is better for my Unix brain.
Perhaps it's not.  I've still got to resolve the double meanings of
tilde (~)
 1 - c:\                        # WinDOS perspective
 2 - \cygdrive\c\home\toshiba   # cygwin perspective
so I'm still schizophrenic about running a Unix set of tools on a
WinDOS box.  It's still not completely unified, and I guess it never
will be (or can be).
