Ok, so there's no easy way to switch to the old behaviour. Bad for us, but
well - our problem... :-(
But still there's one open question for me: are there plans to change the
behaviour of stat(), too?
Because I think it's not good when in such a situation open("/a/b") refers to
another file than stat("/a/b").
I can imagine quite some problems caused in Linux programs by such behaviour
of the system...

Hmmm, is there any other way how one can use two different Cygwin
installations in parallel beside using no mounts?
