For the record, this is not the way things are supposed to work. A cygdrive
change should be recognized instaneously by all cygwin processes.
I suspect that this particular problem was due to a user-mode cygdrive
mount taking precedence over the system mode. cygcheck output would have
confirmed or denied that theory, of course.
