I think Alexey is trying to replicate MSYS's behavior, so it becomes
more of a drop-in replacement. Here's my MSYS /etc/fstab (MSYS doesn't
yet support per-user fstab.d/username settings):
I agree with Corinna that there's no need to make cygwin-in-msys-mode
EXACTLY like MSYS in all of its configuration settings (such as the
syntax of /etc/fstab).
Your MSYS-like cygwin installation would have its own /etc/fstab (in
regular cygwin format), but perhaps your /home area is mapped
differently in that fstab, than in the /etc/fstab in your "regular"
cygwin installation. Or, like me, I have a separate msys-src and
cygwin-src directory mapped onto MSYS's /usr/src and cygwin's /usr/src,
Or is the proposal on the table for the same installation to be usable
in both modes, depending on the nature of the launched application?
