GetCurrentDirectory failed with ERROR_INVALID_HANDLE.  As a result the
buffer was not populated.  What is in dirname[] is stack garbage.

My guess is that /cygdrive/c/Program Files is not associated with a
device or if it associated with a NTFS device the driver doesn't know
how to match /cygdrive with a valid path.
