I think this is the best solution, actually.  It could return a flag
indicating that this was a "cygdrive prefix" mount.  I don't know
why this would screw up anything.

Btw, Jason, if you have not already done so, we'll need to have you
fill out an assignment form at:

http://sourceware.cygnus.com/cygwin/assign.txt

We won't be able to add your patch to cygwin otherwise, since I assume
that it will not be a trivial patch.

I should also point out that, although DJ has Cc'ed cygwin-developers,
you won't be able to send email here unless you're subscribed to
the mailing list.

I think that it is best to discuss these issues on the cygwin-developers
mailing list, so if you'd like to subscribe, please send email to:

cygwin-developers-subscribe AT sourceware DOT cygnus DOT com

And I'll approve the subscription request immediately.

Thanks very much for making these changes.
