Oh.. your are right :-(

Yep, that's why I meant.

Right. I've committed the change to 'file_time'. The problem you see now is
the one we had to already. Jam has /cygdrive/c/DOCUME~1 target.
It looks at /cygdrive/c directory to see if it exists there, and finds only
"Documents And Settings". So, it tries to create the directory.

Solutions are
1. If cygwin's gcc has access to winapi headers, extend the workaround in
pwd.c, which applies only to NT now.
2. If cygwin has a command to convert short name to long one, use it.
3. Ignore this. Instruct to set TEMP for testing and always use long paths.

I'll try to find out the answers to the questions in (1) and (2) myself, but
if you know, please tell.

I see! Dave, I think you can use it to run cygwin tests, as well.
