Re: 1.7] Can you have multipe cygdrive path prefixes active at once

This doesn't seem to work in the case where you have mounted the C: drive.
For example I mount C: on /c
And the above returns:
$ dirname $(cygpath -u c:/)
which doesn't tell me what the cygdrive prefix is -- only where 'c' is
Of course, as pointed out in a later reply, one can use an unused disk drive
letter like 'x' but that is hardly robust since who knows what drive letters
will be unused and/or unmounted.
