64-bit TAR fails with "Cannot connect to e: resolve failed"

I have just "upgraded" to Cygwin 64 bit (from 32 bit) on Windows 8.

With 32 bit, I could do: tar vtf  e:/temp/filename.tar

With 64 bit this fails saying: tar: Cannot connect to e: resolve failed

Using cygwin paths it is OK. ie: tar vtf /cygdrive/e/temp/filename.tar


Here is the result of running cygcheck -s -v -r
