Glad to hear that!  But the file lock is still an problem.  I noticed that
in Steven's Cygwin GNOME 1.4 he had to remove all the lock before
gnome-session in the startup script startgnome. But how to deal with
it when launching a gnome application seperately?

We got this problem in cygnome2. Every time nautilus calls getmntent()
to read the mount table, cygwin would try to scan floppy (just as comman
 `mount' would do). At last I had to modified nautilus-volume-monitor.c
to let get_mount_list to return NULL, in nautilus-2.4.2.
