Problem creating files on network drives with cygwin 1.5.10-3 and tar

After upgrading to 1.5.10, I'm seem to be having a problem creating files on
network drives using tar. For quite a while now (a couple of years, at least),
I've been using tar to back up several directories to a network share, and had
no problems up through version 1.5.9. However, with 1.5.10-3, I get the message

tar: /cygdrive/m/test.tar: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

when I issue the command

tar -cf /cygdrive/m/test.tar test

where test is a directory with a few files in it. 

Now, it doesn't appear to be a permission problem as I can cd to /cygdrive/m
and create files with touch or vim, delete files, copy files, etc. The network
drives are hosted by Windows servers running either NT or 2K.

I tried removing smbntsec from the CYGWIN env var, but that made no difference.
I also tried the latest snapshot with the same results. Reverting to 1.5.9,
however, fixes the problem. 

I did try googling the mailing list archives, but most of what I found was
related to accessing network shares after sshing to a remote node. 

It appears to me that this might be related to

but I wasn't sure so I started a new thread.

Cygcheck output attached.
