Interesting bug?

mount reports (among other things):

v:\\tmp	/tmp	native	text!=binary

which is correct.

in cmd.exe:

cd \tmp
(pwd now C:\tmp)


'ls' displays contents of /tmp, not c:\tmp! ls //c/tmp works as expected.
'rm', 'chmod', and others seem to be looking in //c/tmp as expected when
run with relative path names (ie: echo 'hello' > /tmp/foo.txt, followed by
'rm foo.txt' with c:\tmp as pwd bombs as expected saying "foo.txt: No such
file or directory")
