FYI, I've uploaded a 1.7.0-15 to release-2 which fixes this as well as a
related internal error in Cygwin which was caused by getting an EFAULT
due to the NULL pathname.  It also contains your strchr patch and the
setfacl changes discussed on the main list.

Famous last words:  This is really the last test release before my
vacation starts.  Really, I mean it!
