Re: Long file names not working in cygwin-1.7.0-48

I can't access long path and file names after updating to cygwin-1.7.0-48.
Reverting to cygwin-1.7.0-47
fixes the problem. I also tried the 2009-05-18 Snapshot DLL. Hopefully this
isn't a user error.

Sorry to harp on this but I can't create a directory structure with a long file name in cygwin-1.7.0-48 where I can in -47. I'm quite new to cygwin. Is there a way for me to test the long file name support and report back to the list so we can see if this is a user error?

Probably the easiest way to get feedback on whether this is a user error or not is to send a STC <> so that it's easy for someone else to run your example and see the results. It also would clarify exactly what you're doing, so there's no guess-work involved. I'd also recommend sending your 'cygcheck -s -r -v' output as requested by <>, if you haven't already as part of this thread.
