Greetings, All!

After some manipulations with a newly installed Cygwin, I've encountered an
issue similar to e.g.

What i did was that I've made %Cygwin%/home a directory junction of C:/Users

Basically, when a terminal is started, the screen is polluted by a lot of
errors similar to

shell-init: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: No such file or directory

Error messages go away, when I set current working directory of a mintty
shortcut to %Cygwin% directory, or make an entry in /etc/fstab to match the
binding. In my case,

C:/Users /home ntfs binary,posix=0,noacl,nouser 0 0
