I just played with this and noticed the non-existant drive letters in /.
Playing some more, I reset the prefix to /cygdrive, made dummy directories
(mount points?) for all my drives, and reset the prefix to /.
Now the fixed drives appear in / and the removable media ones appear
only if media is in the drive.
I also made directories for a couple of non-existing drive letters.
After reseting the prefix to /, these entries still show in / but
doing an "ls /X" reports them as "no such file or directory".
