Should we do something about relative Windows paths now bypassing the
mount table and thus being always binary by default?
A simple idea is to use the cygdrive mode as the default.
It's also consistent to have /cygdrive/c/xxx and c:\xxx behave the same.
Granted, that may break some installations, but at least it can be adjusted.

It would also fix

/c/xxx: text
~> cygpath -M c:/xxx
cygpath: file 'c:/xxx' - No error   <= the mode is unspecified, cygpath
                                       prints errno
~> cygpath -M //xxx 
cygpath: file '//xxx' - Not a directory <= Ditto. errno is from rootdir.

Looks fine as far as I am concerned.
