The above implies that your Cygwin installation is not correct.  Due to
the default mounts (via setup.exe), /bin and /usr/bin should resolve
to the same directory.  Try re-running setup.exe to fix your mounts.
If that does not work than try using mount/umount directly.  Your mounts
should look something like:

    $ mount
    Device              Directory           Type         Flags
    C:\Cygwin\bin       /usr/bin            system       binmode
    C:\Cygwin\lib       /usr/lib            system       binmode
    C:\Cygwin           /                   system       binmode

As a last resort, there is always regedit/regedt32.  The keys to whack are

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Cygnus Solutions\Cygwin\mounts v2


    HKCU\SOFTWARE\Cygnus Solutions\Cygwin\mounts v2
