"PuTTYTray -cygterm irssi.exe" results in the following error message:
irs: No such file or directory

Using the GUI, setting the connection type to Cygterm and the command to "irssi.exe" results in PuTTYTray silently terminating.

First noticed while modifying a batch script from the default installation of irssi from:
START puttycyg.exe -cygterm irssi.exe %1 %2 %3 %4 %5
to:
START "PuTTY Tray.exe" -cygterm irssi.exe %1 %2 %3 %4 %5

Everything obviously works properly with puttycyg.exe.

¯_(ツ)_/¯

Cygterm stuff doesn't seem to work, however, and I have no idea what it's supposed to do.

I've fixed some error handling, so maybe someone else can make some progress.

I've fixed this specific issue, but I'm not sure it's working still; if you have an actual usecase you can explain to me (using short, simple words), then maybe I can make it fixed.
