Re: problem with mkdir //fileserver when opening cygwin terminal

I've been having this problem after a while. It seems it appeared
after I removed the 32bits versions, and installed the 64bits one.

Every time I open a terminal, I got this message:

mkdir: cannot create directory `//fileserver': Read-only file system
//fileserver/public/llagos could not be created.
Setting HOME to /tmp.

I have done some updates after that, latest today, but the problem
remains, so I think it's a bug in the sw, but something else, maybe
some garbage left from the 32bits version I used before.

If not that, I don't know what could it be.

Has anyone got any clue on this message and possible solution?

cygwin version is:
$ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-6.1 T420-LLAGOS 1.7.28(0.271/5/3) 2014-02-09 21:06 x86_64 Cygwin

The best thing to do is file a complete problem report.  You can find
details on how to do that at the link below.

As a wild guess, I'm going to assume you have HOME set in your windows
environment to this network directory.  Remove that and I expect you'll
get by this problem.
