RE: Can't Read /cygdrive/c in snapshots from 1108 on (unknown windows error 122)

I unmounted those mounts:

$ mount
C:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\lib\X11\fonts on /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts type system
C:\cygwin\bin on /usr/bin type system (textmode)
C:\cygwin\lib on /usr/lib type system (textmode)
C:\cygwin on / type system (textmode)
c: on /cygdrive/c type user (textmode,noumount)

No change.

Am I supposed to have an actual directory entry for cygdrive?  There is a
directory there:

$ pwd

$ ls -l cygdrive
total 0
d---------   29 ???????? ????????        0 Nov 24 07:09 c/

$ ls -ld cygdrive
dr-xr-xr-x    4 0        0               0 Dec 31  1969 cygdrive/

It doesn't seem to make any different if I rename it to something else; I
gather that /cygdrive is actually a virtual drive like /dev.
