I trust someone else will chime in, but I thought this was not an issue? 
If a textmode mount can't have non-text, then it would be useless (and 
there would not be an option to make *all of cygwin* textmode in 
setup.exe, because nothing would work). Are you sure textmode isn't just 
applied to things opened (using the Cygwin libs) with "rt", and has no 
effect if you open "rb" (which is how I would assume it works)?

The hippo made me do it! What? What do you mean you can't see the hippo?
