Re: find reports an internal system loop on cygdrive

The real directory is causing find to recurse into the /cygdrive/*
hierarchy, and that, in turn, causes the internal loop error. Note that
if you had a c:\bwinrcb file, it would be found with the real /cygdrive
directory, and not found without it (using your command). Also note that
in the new versions of Cygwin (probably 1.5.19), /cygdrive will be listed
in "/" even if it's a virtual directory.
Also, all of what you've described in your message is normal expected
