Duplicating my original post [1], my Q: drive is a network
mount through Samba (2.0.7) to a directory on a QNX 4.25 [2]
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.
