I am having a real problem with 1.7 that I am pretty sure is a
regression. Basically, I am trying to run a find over the cygwin root
installation directory itself, not from cygwin path /. However I am
finding that the cygdrive directory at the cygwin root installation
directory also mounts my drives. So, my find is finding a hole to make
its way out of the current directory. This also appears to be a
regression. The following is an example for 1.7:
$ ls ./cygdrive
c d e
$ ls ./cygdrive
No, a feature. Having the existing drives show up under '/cygdrive' is a
for things like bash and other shells so that they can do completion on the
these drives. If you don't want what's under the '/cygdrive' directory, you
it from your invocation of 'find'.
