I have a NT program, called e.exe, which is used to edit a file. When I
invoked it with a filename described by a path relative to the current
directory, it works fine. However, if I specified a path starting from the
root directory, it interprets into a wrong path. For example,
Current directory: /usr
Invoke: e include/stdio.h -> OK
Invoke: e /usr/include/stdio.h -> FAIL, c:\cygwin\usr\usr\include\stdio.h is
searched instead of c:\cygwin\usr\include\stdio.h
In other words, it looks like no matter what path I specified, it is always
prefixed with the current directory (and discarding / if it starts with /).
