3. Folders/subfolders not under Libraries.

4. Browse to the folder from the absolute path. (i.e. Via drive

space inside them), even if browing to them via Libraries.

6. Browse to folder under Libraries in Explorer via the Libraries
listed on the left. Copy the path from the location bar, paste it into
a *new explorer window*. Right click in the empty space within the

`which chere` tells me it's version 1.4. I'm running Cygwin x64 on
Win7 x64 w/ SP1. Redacted cygcheck.out attached.
