Thanks Markus, this information is quite helpful.  Since there isn't an issue 
with Samba, the Win32 APIs being used in Cygwin are clearly sufficient to 
provide the information required (i.e. file sizes in this case) in a network 
environment in general.  However, in this particular case in this particular 
network environment, there may be an issue.  I would guess that there is 
either a problem with permissions (which John has stated that he's looked at 
before) or there is some other Win32 API that provides the file size even with 
John's setup (which the DOS tools use and Cygwin does not).  What is clear to
me by all this is that the quickest way to resolve this issue is to debug the
code, for better or worse...
