Sort of worked this one out: the problem was that there were 2 lists of 
mount in registry: 
- one "system" in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\...
- and one "user defined" in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\... (ofc, also in 

The solution was to delete all my mounts (either by umount either by 
deleting apropriate registry keys) and remounting with --system.

So my little problem is gone. But: wouldn't be more appropriate (don't 
know how much developement work would this imply) that cygwin.dll would 
update the mount table after login.exe is called? This way, the mounts 
that are defined by a user would be available via sshd logins.
