I know it fails under UNIX, but under Cygwin it
just gives a warning - and things appear to work
OK afterwards, despite the warning. If Cygwin
requires a directory to exist prior to the mount
in order to function properly, then this should
be an error (as on UNIX) and not a warning.
So now we have 3 questions:
1) Do you need a directory to exist before
mounting on the directory (like UNIX), if so,
why just a warning?
2) If you have a drive mounted twice onto two
different directories (e.g. one with text=binary
and the other with text!=binary), how does the
system decide what tree you're in? Order of
mount entries in registry? Always picks the
3) My original cygtchsh80 problem. Can anyone
else reproduce it? (It's simple to try to
reproduce.) If not, what could be different
in my Cygwin setup? mounts? installing on
D: ? something else?
