Re: ftell() fails on files in shared folders

Wrong style.  Don't use DOS paths.  Use POSIX paths instead, like,
in that case, /cygdrive/c/test.bin.

Works for me.  I changed your testcase to allow entering the pathname on
the command line:

  $ ./a ./test.bin
  $ ./a //this-machine/c\$/cygwin/home/corinna/test/bin
  $ ./a //other-machine/c\$/cygwin/home/corinna/test/bin

Either I don't understand your problem description, or you're suffering
from some BLODA problem, maybe.
