This is recreated from memory because I don't have access to Cygwin now.
But this is essentially what worked fine for me last night. Note, the
quote around USERPROFILE is important.
How about simply:
mount -buf "$(cygpath -w "$USERPROFILE")" "$HOME/myh"
I see no reason that can't work as well. But I wasn't attempting to
change the style of the script. I was just trying to point out why
what the OP had wouldn't work well in the cases he described. If the
one-liner you propose above works for the OP's needs, I'd certainly
recommend using it. :-)
