sh.exe 'cd' doesn't understand '//<drive>/path' notation?

I've seen this problem too. In particular I have had configure fail
with  a "cd: lstat /c failed" style error. I have come up with a patch
(below) that fixes the problem. The patch has to be applied to the 0.2
ash source code (from the file ash-linux-0.2.tar.gz in the cygnus b19
download directory). Hope this helps.
