Odd, is it not? mkdir 'e:\' cannot be undone by rmdir 'e:\' ...

How about dropping Eric's code snippet in winsup/cygwin/dir.cc ?????

Subdirectory 'a' is created. No problem there. Perhaps the patch has
become superfluous/ redundant over time?

I have tried different "values" for the path-argument to mkdir, and
have not found a problem while the code snippet is being skipped.

What am I missing?
