I'm using the following sequence of actions to reproduce this problem:
bash-2.05b$ echo "Test" >/c/test/test1.txt
bash-2.05b$ echo "Test" >c:/test/test2.txt
bash-2.05b$ ls -l
-rw-r--r-- 1 vvysotsk mkpasswd 6 Oct 10 19:49 test1.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 vvysotsk mkpasswd 6 Oct 10 19:49 test2.txt
Since drive C: is mounted in text mode (mount -f -s -t "c:" /c), both
test1.txt and test2.txt are 6 bytes long ('T', 'e', 's', 't', 0x0D,
0x0A). This is with cygwin1.dll version 1.3.2.
However, when I install cygwin1.dll version 1.5.x, test2.txt is only
5 bytes long, ending with just 0x0A:
C: is not mounted in text mode. /c is mounted in text mode. C: isn't
mounted at all.
If you set CYGWIN=textmode then that would mean that windows-style paths
would be treated as text-mounts.
