The last snapshot (990202) doesn't work anymore. I can't test the behaviour
of cvs.

My mounts:
Device              Directory           Type         Flags
D:                  /                   system       binmode
R:                  /cdrom              system       binmode
C:                  /cygdrive/c         user,auto    textmode
F:                  /export             system       binmode
E:                  /zip                system       binmode

I can't change directory to /export/src because the system is convinced,
the directory /export is empty. the link /src -> /export/src isn't
usable anymore. 

BTW: Why should this snapshot fix the cvs behaviour? The code of is the same as in the previous snapshot.
As I wrote to DJ, I'm using the old code of fhandler_base constructor
and open call for setting bin/text mode.
