problems starting bash

when I started bash using the following environment, I received no errors. I
could use pipes and all the good things. but I was using the default login,
not my home directory setup.

"dos environment" prior to executing 'bash'
winbootdir=C:\WIN
COMSPEC=C:\COMMAND.COM
DJGPP=d:\dosgnu\DJGPP.ENV
PROMPT=$p$g
windir=C:\WIN
PATH=D:\DOSGNU\BIN;D:\PC-DOS;C:\WIN;C:\WIN\COMMAND;C:\BATCH
TMP=c:\temp
TEMP=c:\temp
DIRCMD=/o:gne

my command line appeared as:
 bash <cr>

when I started bash using the following environment, I received piping
errors, and some times a general protection fault, and then dumped out of
'bash'. I also copied _blogin, _bashrc, and _inputrc
from d:\dosgnu\gnu\bash-2.04\dos to d:\dosgnu\home\mikefr; my home directory

"dos environment" prior to executing 'bash'
winbootdir=C:\WIN
COMSPEC=C:\COMMAND.COM
DJGPP=d:\dosgnu\DJGPP.ENV
HOME=d:\dosgnu\home\mikefr
TMPDIR=d:\temp
PROMPT=$p$g
windir=C:\WIN
PATH=D:\DOSGNU\BIN;D:\PC-DOS;C:\WIN;C:\WIN\COMMAND;C:\BATCH
TMP=c:\temp
TEMP=c:\temp
DIRCMD=/o:gne

my command line appeared as:
bash --login <cr>

sometimes I wouldn't have a  general protection fault and i would stay in
bash. I would then echo the environment to the screen with 'set', and I
would notice that environment variable 'tmpdir' would return '/temp',
instead of 'd:/temp'.

whats wrong with my setup.

thanks,
