Ok. Wont argue this. :-)

No. Only stuff from MSYS official distribution on SF.

That's what i did.

But, tar was executed in a window (cmd.exe) console (not under the msys sh).

E:\> cd MSys
E:\MSys> tar -xf MSYS-archive.tar

So, the msys executables should not be executed in window console (cmd.exe).
because  then, they do not respect the mounts.

Is that correct ?
And, is it a bug ?
