I notice the problem about files through 
network too ( about one month ago). I can not even make gywin32 work through 
network ( eg. I can not run these tools properly through network)

Subject: file sizes over network

I noticed the following when I first started using 
cygwin (b17); it's still
there with Sergey's latest b18:

gato% ls -l //k/autoexec.bat
-rwxr-xr-x   1 dennis   everyone 3236814704 Apr 23 14:27 

//k is the c: drive on my wife's machine, over ethernet.  This is
definitely the wrong size for autoexec.bat!

Is this a well-known bug?
