If I understand correctly you can't normally see or access mapped network drives on windows when remotely logged through cygwin sshd, but I found a way and I have a couple questions:
Have you seen and read through this?
Seems that I've missed that... So there is no easy way to use non-public share, except with 'net use' command, but is there any work-in-progress around this issue at the moment?`(personally I would gladly participate, but I know too little about windows programming and cygwins internals to actually be helpfull ;) ).

Is anyone rewriting Windows to make it work better with Cygwin's ssh?

No, not that I'm aware of.

Ah, of course not... I don't understand the technical side of this fully (but I've tried as well as I can) but it seems to me that if I can get access to mapped drive through ssh even though it's be reattaching a screen session originally started locally from the desktop where the drive was also mapped from then there should be some other ways to hack around the problem too... I don't know how, but would it not seem to be in someway possible to write cygwin and/or sshd to work so that the user who logs in through sshd would have the same rights to mapped drive that he does get when attaching a session running inside the screen?

It seems to me that there must be a way but I don't know if it would be a really dirty hack or if a nicer solution would be possible... Would I have more techincal knowledge about how these programs and OS work I would gladly participate in planning, designing and coding it :)
