While running cron-config I chose to run as a privileged user.  Here
is the output from the script.

$ cron-config
Do you want to install the cron daemon as a service? (yes/no) yes
Enter the value of CYGWIN for the daemon: [ntsec smbntsec] ntsec smbntsec

The service can run either as yourself or under a privileged account.
Running as yourself allows better access to network drives,
but does not allow to run the crontab of other users.
Do you want to the cron daemon to run as yourself? (yes/no) no


Running cron_diagnose ...

The SYSTEM user cannot access the mount point /usr/bin.
Please run the following command to add a system mount point:
   mount -f -s -b "[DOS path to Cygwin]/bin" "/usr/bin"
where [DOS path to Cygwin] is something like c:/cygwin.

For more information, run 'mount -m' and 'mount -h'


The SYSTEM user cannot access the mount point /usr/lib.
Please run the following command to add a system mount point:
   mount -f -s -b "[DOS path to Cygwin]/lib" "/usr/lib"
where [DOS path to Cygwin] is something like c:/cygwin.

For more information, run 'mount -m' and 'mount -h'


The SYSTEM user cannot access the mount point /.
Please run the following command to add a system mount point:
   mount -f -s -b "[DOS path to Cygwin]/" "/"
where [DOS path to Cygwin] is something like c:/cygwin.

For more information, run 'mount -m' and 'mount -h'

WARNING: Your computer does not appear to have a cron table for shinji.
Please generate a cron table for shinji using 'crontab -e'

There may be serious issues with your environment.
You should look into them and run this script again.
Do you want to continue anyway? (yes/no) no

Can I just ignore these warnings and continue anyways?  It is
obviously still referencing the 1.5 type mount command here even
though I am running 1.7.
