Well, I take that back...someone pointed me to
http://www.gigascale.org/softdevel/faq/23.html, which contains
instructions for reinstalling CygWin with text mode set to DOS, which
actually fixes the problem (the remount procedure didn't work, as is
warned in the article). All I did was run the setup utility, selected
DOS text mode, and selected the base/cygwin and devel/cvs packages for
reinstallation...works like a charm now. The contents of this article
might be good fodder for the FAQs. Cheers!
I'd suggest this is the wrong direction to head in this case for at
least a few of reasons:
1. This hasn't really risen to the level of a FAQ.
2. The problem is ill-defined at least and isn't shared by the vast
3. It's not at all clear that the problem isn't fixable if it were
Perhaps someone seeing this problem could spend a little more time with
it and see if a solution can be found that makes any documentation of
it unnecessary. That would be a real big help.
