Probably a bug. Similar things happen with 'updatedb' (a shell script
,--- * updatedb and /cygdrive/c (24.01.2003 20:06:36)
| Two problems with Cygwin and "updatedb":
| 1. "updatedb" terminates with
| "/usr/bin/find: . changed during execution of /usr/bin/find".
| This happens unless called with '--prunepaths="/cygdrive"'
| ("/cygdrive" is a "real" directory).
| 2. I'm calling "updatedb" with
| '--prunepaths="/cygdrive /cygdrive/c/CDROM /cygdrive/c/FLOPPY /cygdrive/c/DATA/cygwin /dev /proc"'
| (DATA, FLOPPY and CDROM are mounted under Windows XP).
| Unfortunately "updatedb" omits certain directories (/cygdrive/c/DATA
| /cygdrive/c/DATA/VPOP3 /cygdrive/c/WINDOWS). So I have to say
| '--localpaths="/ /cygdrive/c /cygdrive/c/DATA /cygdrive/c/DATA/VPOP3 /cygdrive/c/WINDOWS"'
| Does anyone know why "updatedb" doesn't like "/cygdrive" and why
| certain directories aren't searched?!
