Hi all, 


I'm using the pwd.exe command from a standard winXP command prompt
( for building Mozilla ). 

When coreutils 5.2.1-4 is installed, that gives me: 
C:\devel\lgo\mozilla>pwd
/cygdrive/c/devel/lgo/mozilla

However, when I upgrade to coreutils 5.3.0-2 I get this weird result:
C:\devel\lgo\mozilla>pwd
pwd: reading directory `../../../..'

C:\devel\lgo\mozilla>bash
bash-2.05b$ pwd
/cygdrive/c/devel/lgo/mozilla

Even more strange, is that when I execute pwd from the command prompt, I hear 
my floppy disk being accessed. 

Can somebody help me out on this? Is this expected behaviour?

thanks, 

Lieven.
