The problem is that you mapped cygdrive to "/". This resulted in a
misguided strcpy. I've fixed that, thanks for the cygcheck output
However, you're aware of the problems with mapping cygdrive to "/", are
you? You'll never see the list of available drives since the special
cygdrive handling can't kick in for the root dir. This also results in
a wrong link count for the root dir. There's no easy way to fix that
and it's definitely not of any priority to us to change this.
(*) It would be nice if you could try to shorten an strace in a meaningful
way next time. Hundreds of lines with
