Hi Igor.

Thanks for responding so promptly :).

cygcheck.out attached.

I didn't find anything about any drives being mounted as text, though.

Two small bits of info that might or might not have some value:

1) I believe this has worked earlier (i.e. 6 months ago) for a colleague of
mine, running a recent version of cygwin. Which means that something could
have been broken in cygwin after that, or (more likely) that something for
some reason is configured differently on my system.

2) When I installed cygwin, I was asked if I wanted the tools to support
Unix-style newlines or DOS-style newlines. I answered "DOS-style". I did
reinstall cygwin, specifying "Unix-style" newlines this time, and had the
same problem though.
