Hi, it happens even if boo does exist. To put it in context, the
script in question was attempting to determine the current directory:

CURRENT_DIR=$(cygpath -ma "${0}"/../)

(I didn't write this script but I assume they did this for performance reasons.)

But anyway, as you can see ${0} always exists.

I looked at the other thread but don't see an immediate connection as
that was checking for non-existing path members.
