/usr/bin not automounted sometimes

Hi list! Sometimes, when I start cygwin.bat, it prints me:
-bash: /usr/bin/tr: No such file or directory
-bash: /usr/bin/sed: No such file or directory
and mount shows that /usr/bin and /usr/lib not mounted.
But if I run cygwin.bat as another windows user (e.g. by runas), it
logins normally. Of cource, I can mount them manually as a workaround
I think it happens when one windows user is running a cygwin program
and another user tries to login. I had this problem on 2 Windows XP
machines, but it's not 100% reproduceable.
For once it was just bash running as local admin: when I closed that
program, I was able to login as non-admin.
Later I installed nfsd and it also causes this problem sometimes: I
have to restart the nfsd service.
