D'oh! Not possible: there's no -xdev option on chown, so that would
do a whole lot more chown-ing than intended, as it reached across the
network, or at least into other mount points under "/" ...
While just checking that, I also discovered that "man chown" now
produces no output. Other man entries seem fine.
$ cygcheck -s | grep "^cygwin "
