I was misremembering that Cygwin doesn't have or need a 'umount'.
Must've been thinking about something else. At any rate, I know I have
sometimes been able to re-mount drives without first unmounting them.
You can use the '-f' flag to force a remount without 'umount'ing first.
Cygwin has a 'umount' though.
Ooooooh... and here I always thought '-f' was how you told it to *not*
mount 'noexec' (which apparently isn't documented?).

Umm, sounds like you haven't tried "mount --help" yet?

Nope, I've tried 'man mount', though I'll admit I was looking at the -x, -X, -E flags I was pointed at.

Here is what I am talking about:
~$ mount h:/mwoehlke/src /usr/src
mount: defaulting to '--no-executable' flag for speed since native path
       references a remote share.  Use '-f' option to override.

...neither 'mount --help' or 'man mount' makes *any* mention of this additional functionality of the '-f' flag. See? I'm *not* imagining things. :-)
