Apparently this isn't quite correct, and you have to start MSYS2 with a
special batch file that overrides this for you.
Just running bash.exe or sh.exe from a DOS prompt results in this and is
apparently considered "wrong usage".

Oh well. I think I'll stick to my simpler MSYS1 world.

So disregard this patch.
