Re: [Mingw-msys] forking issue on Windows XP?

To Keith:

I renamed d:\msys\1.0\mingw to d:\msys\1.0\mingw2, did the changes in 
fstab and profile files and it works. I don't know why there is a problem 
with mingw subdir. It always worked before.

One thing: my firewall stopped scanning files in that directoy. That's the 
only specific thing that occurs in d:\msys\1.0\mingw, afaict.

indeed, it's like that. With mingw2 :

$ od -t a /etc/fstab
0000000  nl   d   :   /   m   s   y   s   /   1   .   0   /   m   i   n
0000020   g   w   2  ht   /   m   i   n   g   w  nl  nl

is it a problem ?
