The filesystem I'm having troubles with on the mac side is
/Volumes/project and being mapped on Windows from \\hostname\project
(or accessed via UNC in Cygwin as //hostname/project) so I'm already
thinking its not an issue with the path.
I would think if it was an issue with Mac's SMB implementation, then
*Windows* would also have some sort of issues with it. But it shows
up fine on Windows, I would assume it should show fine in Cygwin as
