Subject: [boost] [filesystem] cygwin paths

  Does Boost.Filesystem have any support at all for
cygwin paths? I know that you want to use Windows
paths internally, but this creates problems for
programs that get paths from an external source.
In particular, it causes the regression tests
to fail when running from cygwin. See

else if ( !locate_root.is_complete() )
    locate_root = ( fs::initial_path() / locate_root ).normalize();

locate_root is created by

      locate_root = fs::path( *args_i );

i.e. it's taken directly from the command line.

In Christ,
