Win2000?  Who uses that ol' lump?  I mean, what kind of backward,
knuckle-draggin', misfit would be caught dead using that... oh, wait
a minute.  I use that. ;-)

Hm, weird.  Yes.  I see something I would call that.  It
seems to be treating the directory as a file:

bash-3.2$ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-5.0 s1 1.7.0s(0.180/4/2) 20080219 16:43:46 i686 Cygwin
bash-3.2$ ls -l //ds9/tmp/size
-rw-r--r-- 1 sash None 0 Nov 30  2006 //ds9/tmp/size
bash-3.2$ ls  //ds9/tmp/size

Is this what you were expecting?
