Thanks for checking. 

In the meantime, I'll submit a patch to egcs that handles the current 
release. It'll continue to work with b21 since it uses a different 
scheme (/cygdrive instead //<drive> if I remember correctly), so it's 
pretty safe. 

fyi, these problems came up when trying to change the pathname scheme
in egcs to POSIX only for Cygwin as we had discussed earlier.
