  Let me see if I can parse those last two sentences:

  You didn't know about using "mount" to manipulate the mount tables because
you thought that all cygwin programs depend on the mount tables .... except
for "mount", which you already knew didn't depend on the mount tables?

  This conversation has now descended into self-contradictory gibberish, and
as such I find myself forced to run around the room in circles, flapping my
arms like a chicken and making clucking noises.
