Really?  You DID edit your /etc/passwd and change the home directory to be
a share?

The 6/14 snap WJFFM when doing an ls in a share, but not when the home
directory was a share.

My cygwin.bat:

   @echo off

   chdir C:\cygwin\bin

   set CYGWIN=check_case:strict

   rem strace -o c:\cygwin\strace.out C:\cygwin\bin\bash --login -i
   C:\cygwin\bin\bash --login -i

I changed my home directory in /etc/password to be
//explr_drivers5/reboot_results2 as used originally when I discovered the
ls problem.

If I comment out the strict setting, it works, but if left strict, it
doesn't work.

I attached a different strace.out in
