Subject: Bash exiting prematurely

On my machine I have the following defined in /etc/profile:
    tr -d \\r <$1 >$1.dtou;
    mv $1.dtou $1
    ( cd `dirname $1`;
    cmd /c start /wait wordpad `basename $1` );
    dtou $1

Also CYGWIN32='binmode tty ntea notitle'.

If I perform these commands:
$ bash --login
$ touch junk
$ wp junk&

and then close wordpad, I will see a logout message in my Bash session 
and it will exit.  This happens both in the B20alpha4 binary 
distribution and in a private build I have made locally.
