If you are referring to 'mount -b --change-cygdrive-prefix /cygdrive', I
tested it before I sent the original email and again after I recieved your
response. Even after doing so,
echo Hello>/cygdrive/h/junk yields 6 bytes
echo Hello>//h/junk yields 7 bytes
If, on the other hand, you are referring to something like 'mount -b H:\\
//h', it returns without error, nothing shows up in the output from 'mount',
and I still get a 7 byte file.
I even tried 'mount -b --change-cygdrive-prefix /' to no avail and 'mount -b
--change-cygdrive-prefix /' gave a "mount failed: Invalid argument" message.
I may just be thick-headed but I didn't get what mount command you were
