Infinite recursion of rmdir.
After a failure the idea is to chdir to c:\ and to delete the directory
ONCE again by calling rmdir, but SetCurrentDirectory does not update
cygheap->cwd.win32, so ...
An obvious fix is to replace of call to rmdir by a call to
RemoveDirectory (real_dir), but that looks too simple.
I don't see much in the ChangeLog. Any other suggestion?
if (strcasematch (real_dir, cygheap->cwd.win32)
&& !strcasematch ("c:\\", cygheap->cwd.win32))
DWORD err = GetLastError ();
if (!SetCurrentDirectory ("c:\\"))
else if ((res = rmdir (dir)))
