No.  I meant a distinct mount point, *different* from your cygdrive
prefix.  See http://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/using.html#cygdrive

This works:

  H: /h xyz binary,noacl 0 0 
  none /mnt cygdrive binary,posix=0,user 0 0

Or this:

  H: /myhome xyz binary,noacl 0 0 
  none / cygdrive binary,posix=0,user 0 0
