I wish you had addressed my primary question with the similar wit...
Whatever the mount/mapping are doing, somehow, they are different for
the same inetd.exe depending on whether it starts as a service or from
The actual mapping:
C:\cygwin\bin on /usr/bin type user (binmode)
C:\cygwin\lib on /usr/lib type user (binmode)
C:\cygwin on / type user (binmode)
does not suggest any trouble, does it? Why is the inetd.conf not found,
even though both -- the cmd's ``dir'' and CygWin's ls confirm its presense:
Volume in drive C has no label.
Volume Serial Number is 07D1-0517
