More than that: Cygwin doesnât contain an SMB client. (I mean, not at the cygwin1.dll level.) It is just using what Windows gives it.
Thatâs why Iâm grasping at straws like the path error in the strace output, since the only thing that makes sense to me is a problem in the way Cygwin is interpreting what it gets from Windows, rather than the SMB protocol peers doing the wrong thing.
I suppose it could be that Windows Explorer and cygwin1.dll are making different NT kernel syscalls, and that explains the problem. Lacking a ârealâ strace on Windows, Iâm not sure how to test that. Maybe Process Monitor could do this?
There is also this, one of the Google results for âWindows straceâ:
