I know this is not correct but I think it was interesting to mention
it because in this case the etc_changed function is no longer complaining.
So I believe it found something to open, likely the expected /etc directory.

And according to me, it means that during init_cygheap, the mount table 
is half available. If someone knowledgeable want to dig that way, I am
ready to try further tests.

BTW, the interest (for me) in removing this error is that it hangs the 
ediff function of emacs (at least) because there is an error.
