Thank you for the timely reply! However I am stuck on what should be a
simple step: rebaseall tells me /tmp is not writable. I have tried a variety
of directories (all of which are actually writable of course) and a variety
of ways of geting there, including mount point, env. var, etc.
Further experimentation leads me to believe the shell will return false
for -w of any directory. This is consistent with the apparent mode of 555 I
see on all of them. And of course they don't respond to chmod. (I believe
this is a windows thing that I have even read about somewhere in the cygwin
So I am left with the question: how would this ever work?
