Of course. As you surmised, these two are *NOT* the same. The literal
path "/proc" (and "/dev") are treated specially.
Unlike on linux, "mount" is not modifying the kernel layer below to
create a file system linkage - it's all in the emulation layer for
open() in cygwin1.dll..
You can't cd to "/" using a native win32 shell, for instance, and see
any of these mount points..
