I am wondering why you have the first three mount points (the contrib,
bin and usr)? All you need, so long as these are all together under the
Cygwin install location (which is normally the case), is the single
mount for / which will then lead to the other directories since they are
present under it. You also have d: mounted as / which will conflict
with with the mount of d:/cygwin so you should remove it. I'd suggest
running umount with the --remove-user-mounts option and then mount for
the d:/users directory using the -s option so it is stored for system
Don't know if these might be causing your problem, but it is certainly
confusing to me when I try to think through what is happening.
