Actually, I do have /bin in my PATH. I do a very simple Cygwin install,
and it appears to be there by default. So yeah, that is likely why
commands, etc., continue to work. Though the strange thing is that when
you do the umount command I mention, it sometimes happens that you can't
just type 'mount'...it's as if /bin ISN'T in the PATH even though it is.
My comments regarding having to use the full path in rebuilding /usr/bin
so you can see it via 'ls' were more in case Stephan did not have /bin
in his PATH or found himself getting these kinds of error messages.
When in doubt, absolute paths beat relative ones. ;-)
The issue of /usr/bin disappearing from listings, however, is an odd
one. Still not sure what causes it. I remember the first time I
noticed this and fixed it. A few months later, I looked and again,
/usr/bin did not appear to be there. Just weird.
