Well try running "bash --login -i" from the start->run dialog box and
see if the same thing happens.  If it does, then I'd fire up cmd, run
"bash" (bash only, no flags) and start sourcing the various files
from /etc and $HOME until you find the trigger.  Another thing to try is
to add "set -x" to the top of the /etc/profile  and/or $HOME/.bashrc
file and then run the batch file again.  And one more tip is to install
rxvt.exe and use that instead of a dos window (if memory serves):

rxvt -e bash --login -i
