/bin mount point and sh.exe

I have chosen the "identity mount" setup and mounted 
as shown below.  I have mounted c: as /c as well, but in this case it
is umount-ed at the moment.

It is important that sh.exe be able to find itself to execute shell
scripts.  So I went so far as to put a few critical programs like sh,
ls, cat, rm, etc in 
c:\bin to see if sh.exe could always find what it needs.  

This is the question:  
At DOS with paths set up so that the H-i586-cygwin32/bin directory can
be found, should I be able
to simply type:

sh ls

and get a directory?  As it is, sh cannot find ls in this way.  Is this
bad syntax, or is this normal behavior?

My mounts are down below.

Thanks,
Mark
