Naturally, I tried all flavours:

The command completed successfully.
$ ls q:/

Please don't use DOS paths. Use POSIX paths like /cygdrive/q instead:
$ ls /cygdrive/q/
ls: cannot access /cygdrive/q/: Input/output error
Works fine for me using a Linux Samba share with space in it.
Okay, that leaves the parentheses as the likely troublemaker.
The thing is, people bring in disks, and I have no control over their volume / share names.
Any more ideas? Where's Santa when you need him ;-)
"Input/output error" is just an EIO. strace might show more useful
information. EIO could be generated for a couple of reasons, for
instance, the WIn32 errors ERROR_DISK_CORRUPT or ERROR_OPEN_FAILED are
translated to the POSIX EIO. Another chance to get EIO is if something
goes badly wrong trying to read a symlink. Or, that's always a chance,
the OSX smb server doesn't support some system call used by Cygwin. It
wouldn't be the first such FS.
You must be Santa!
I did not believe it, but I tried the same share names on a linux server: that works fine.
Indeed it looks like a cygwin/mac problem.
That still leaves me with a lot of unhappy users.
So where can I find strace?
