Re: "as it was replaced while being copied" error when doing a cp command to an older Samba server

Hello all,

I have a new Windows 7 PC (I'm already missing my old XP, sniff, sniff), and am attempting to copy files from a pretty old Samba server (2.2.5). In the upgrade to Windows 7, I also upgraded to cygwin 1.7 and specifically to coreutils to 8.15-1. I get the error:

d:\dev>cp -r //* B_Hotfix_7_0_00_150/build/Agent_Dist/nonstop
cp: skipping file `//', as it was replaced while being copied
This still works on my old XP system which runs Cygwin 1.5 and coreutils to 6.10-2.

I did notice several references to this error in the mail archive but
nothing seems to help.

How about this?
