[Patch] "strace ./app.exe" probably runs application from /bin

cygcheck is also affected by the same issue like strace:

$ cd /tmp

$ cygcheck ./ls

$ cygcheck ././ls
ls - cannot open.

The attached patch fixes this for strace and cygcheck.
It does not fix the cygcheck issue reported by Brian.

All other calls to path.cc:cygpath() use absolute path names.
So it should not break anything to keep a leading "./".

	* path.cc (cygpath): Don't remove leading "./" to avoid
	invalid application search in strace and cygcheck.
