Thanks for the report. That's a blatant bug in the /dev handling.
I hope I fixed it sufficiently in CVS. I'm just generating a new
snapshot which should be available in about half an hour on
Please give it a try. For instance, call the /etc/postinstall/bash.sh
and /etc/postinstall/000-cygwin-post-install.sh files manually ands
report back if they do what they should in terms of /dev. Maybe the
scripts now have a .done suffix, but you should still be able to run
