Duplicating my original post , my Q: drive is a network
mount through Samba (2.0.7) to a directory on a QNX 4.25 
system running on my PC through Virtual PC.
From my Cygwin environment, copying (cp) files from
/cygdrive/q has been working well for well over a year,
and has been invaluable, but stopped working some weeks ago,
due to, I suspect, a Cygwin update, but I don't know which,
but apparently not the recent tar 1.25 one.
Please let me know what additional information I can provide
as I am anxious to restore this functionality.
