This is an update to the latest patchlevel 122. Cygwin Vim still builds
I'm still having problems editing /etc/hosts. Also see my earlier report
It probably is because /etc/hosts is a symlink. It is not a major
problem, but a but annoying.
In my case it's a symlink, too and I don't have problems editing it.
The "Cannot create swap file" message is often an indicator that
the directory in which vim tries to write the swap file is read-only.
See ":help directory" and ":set dir". Note especially the meaning
of the single dot path "." in this variable.
Look at the archives again. For some reason this reply was not linked to
my original post: http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2006-06/msg00279.html
I've tried his test case and Mark is right. When a symlink is created
with a win32 path, vim can not create the swapfile. When a symlink is
created with POSIX filenames there is no problem.
