And don't forget that you need to make sure all your cygwin apps are closed 
after removing the olds mounts. Otherwise the shared memory in the cygwin 
.dll make things all screwy.

The usual suspect is inetd (stop the service in 
I know it gets me every time ;-(

In fact, I tend to stop all my cygwin processes. Then run the mount 
commands from a cmd.exe/ prompt.

Hope this helps,
