bin/idea.sh and Cygwin

Hi Chris , thanks for the info .
However I found out that replacing the /cygdrive/C/ with C:/ in the top-level xml/iml files in the ".idea" - folder
makes IntelliJ happy, I could then open the project successfully from IntelliJ .
So I guess a couple of "cygpath -aw" -calls at the right places in the project generation might fix the idea.sh based project file generation on Cygwin (without postprocessing).
Any comments on this ?
Or is there another way to get .idea/-files that open "out of the box" ?
Best regards, Matthias
