Cygwin doesn't, AFAIK, have any command-line length limit other than the
amount of memory available to store the command line. Windows has a
limit but Cygwin shouldn't impose one. That's why I advocate using
the "mount -X" option. Not only does it work around these type of things
it should also speed things up slightly.
