Thanks Michael - I've applied a slight variation (cygfile:// is the
appropriate prefix for the io_stream_cygfile links) to the setup200202
branch. For HEAD we should actually start using io_streams in desktop.cc
which will remove the need for cygpath usage. Rather than renaming
cygpath (which is consistent with cygwin's innards, and the cygpath
commandline util) I'd like to finish getting everything to use
io_stream's cygfile:// syntax.
