Seems like the limit on your time is very laxed.
For the time you wrote all the posts to this list, I've downloaded whole
Cygwin /cvs/src, found the offended string, patched the file, and it took me 2
days to rebuild it only because I wasn't familiar with out-of-the tree build
system. (Had to read building instructions first, yeah...)
Now, I'm a happy owner of a custom cygpath that doesn't annoy me with
insignificant warnings.
