Re: Problems with archiver "ar"

Don't mount to /cygdrive/c/DATA/; mount points to a subdirectory of
/cygdrive don't really do any good, because the path resolution does not
look for mount points residing inside /cygdrive.  Instead, mount
c:\data\myproject to a POSIX path (ie. something like /myProject).

Thanks, Eric, for pointing this out. - That clarifies all!

What more needs to be tested?  Until cgf releases a new binutils with an
update to ar that forces binary mode on all archival actions, the current
behavior on textmounts isn't going to change.

Thus I think the error seems to be clear and I need no further testing. (I just wanted to narrow doewn, but you guys are rather familiar with the source code and already know what is going wrong.)

Thanks! - And I am really looking forward to the next releases.
