Pretty simple: I shared the entire drive from my OS X box to the Cygwin VM hosted on the same machine, and got this error with commands like âls /pâ when the drive is mapped as P:.
If I map my OS X Desktop folder to Q: on the Windows side, the problem doesnât occur.
There are no ACLs on the root of either Mac OS X drive (ls -led /) so if itâs an OS X-side permission problem, itâs happening at a different layer than the filesystem. Perhaps one of the MAC layers? (Gatekeeper, etc.)

Possibly. OS X switched from Samba to an Apple-specific smbd in 10.7:
Iâll repeat that Windows Explorer seems to have no problem showing the contents of the root of the P: share, though.
