fallout of path conversion work? [No endline conversion while in dir that can be reached via both textmode and binmode mounts]

I haven't actually checked this but, if what the user says is true, then
it seems like cygwin is broken somewhere.  AFAICT, /test/cygwin/t/b
should be written in text mode.

Pierre or Corinna would you mind following up on this?

Bug or a feature?  Shouldn't /test/cygwin/t/d be 3 bytes long as well? 
I recall it working properly (i.e. converting to windows endlines) when
inside such directory some time ago.

Best regards,
Jacek.
