 This won't work on cygwin (nor in Windows AFAIK).
Cygwin is an emulated environment, which depends entirely (exception;
managed mode fs) on Windows for its filesystem; thus no possible way to do
this.

Unless you're knowledgable enough yourself to implement it within the Cygwin
filesystem _emulation_.

Igor, CGF, ...? Please verify, is this correctly understood/described?
