text / binary mounts (sorry)

Since we are discussing the mount command...


    mount --help



indicate that the '--change-cygdrive-prefix' option can be used with
the '-s' option.  I assume that this would change the drive prefix on
a system-wide instead of just a user-wide basis.

Unfortunately, when I try

    mount -b -s --change-cygdrive-prefix /mnt

and look in the registry.  I see that

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Cygnus Solutions\Cygwin\mounts v2

changes and that

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Cygnus Solutions\Cygwin\mounts v2

remains unchanged.

Is this a documentation or programming bug?
