Whether Cygwin is "Windows" is..... an interesting problem in
definitions. It's precisely the sort of problem I mentioned.

No idea why or how the passwords were appearing in CygWin. But CygWin
has "vim" available: Mine has it installed, and it works fine. I'm
really confused which "vim" he expected to use: one installed in
Windows natively, or the one in CygWin?
