The problem is in the mount table. Make sure, that the root dir is mounted in
bin mode.

> Here's my mount table:
> e:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\lib\X11\fonts on /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts type
> system (binmode)
> e:\cygwin\opt\kde3 on /opt/kde3 type system (binmode)
> e:\cygwin\bin on /usr/bin type system (binmode)
> e:\cygwin\lib on /usr/lib type system (binmode)
> e:\cygwin on / type system (textmode)

$ cd c:/cygwin/bin (or wathever your cygwin root dir is)
$ umount -s /
$ mount -s -b c:/cygwin /
