cygwin bash, when running inside an emacs *shell* buffer, must use 
or it won't work.

Here is an annotated transcript:

## my normal setting is  'undecided-unix
/cygdrive/c/HOME/rmh/hh$ date
Wed Nov 23 15:11:42 EST 2005

## M-: (set-buffer-process-coding-system 'undecided-dos 'undecided-dos)
/cygdrive/c/HOME/rmh/hh$ date
: command not found
## what happened above is that CR LF was sent to bash.  It died on the CR.

## restore normal behavior
## M-: (set-buffer-process-coding-system 'undecided-unix 'undecided-unix)
/cygdrive/c/HOME/rmh/hh$ date

Some Windows programs running inside a comint buffer require 'undecided-windows.
