I just upgraded from bash-2.04-7a to bash-2.05-1. The built-in
command "pwd" seems to be broken now for directories starting
with "/cygdrive". Using mounted directories (e.g. "/usr/local/")
or also the notation "//c" seems to work.
bash-2.05$ cd /cygdrive/c
bash-2.05$ mkdir x
bash-2.05$ cd x
bash-2.05$ mkdir y
bash-2.05$ cd y
/cygdrive/c/x/y <-- correct
bash-2.05$ cd ../..
/cygdrive/c/x/y/../.. <-- wrong (well, formally correct)
bash-2.05$ cd x/y
/cygdrive/c/x/y/../../x/y <-- wrong
Note that /usr/bin/pwd (GNU shutils 2.0) reports the correct
path (continuation from example above):
I don't have the time unfortunately now to look at the bash source
myself. I hope that just pointing out the problem might be useful
already, without a specific patch.
