[coreutils] Bug in du with -x flag?

    Hi list,

  I always used to use du with the -cxhs options, but since updating to the
latest (8.15-1) version there appears to be a problem caused by -x:

> $ ls -la

  Unless I'm misunderstanding it badly, -x shouldn't make any difference when
counting a real file in the current directory.  I wonder if it could have
perhaps been introduced by the recent related bugfix that I read about in

>   du -x no longer counts root directories of other file systems.

or perhaps some interaction between that and Cygwin's path conversion code?
