I'd been considering that but haven't had the time yet.
$ touch aux.x
touch: setting times of `aux.x': Invalid argument

$ mount
c:\foo on /foo type system (binmode,managed)

$ pwd

Strace of touch is available here:
da43f49aca1b4d825cd3c65d1539d9ed *touch.strace

The managed-ness of the mount doesn't seem to be kicking in..
    324  1766  225955 [main] touch 1344 fhandler_base::open: 0x214 = CreateFile 
    324 (c:\foo\aux.x, 0x40000000, 0x7, 0x22F9E0, 0x4, 0x2000080, 0)

Oddness is gaping at me: mount clearly reports the mount as managed, but Cygwin
seems to happily ignore its new feature..
