It seems that mkshortcut is failing as of the last few weeks (when I did an
upgrade to latest Cygwin). Upgrade as of today shows the same problems. I
have scripts that use mkshortcut that have not changed in a long time, which
worked before, and now do not.
Specifically, the man page example:
mkshortcut -P http://www.cygwin.com
goes into an infinite loop.
mkshortcut -D http://www.cygwin.com
cd /tmp && mkshortcut /cygdrive/c/root
cd /tmp && mkshortcut /cygdrive/c/root/Favorites
Aborted (core dumped).
PS: possibly a permissions problem on my side? I had recently copied the
Favorites folder from another machine. I have done this periodically in the
past with no ill effects to mkshortcut.
