hey, blabberer, how's it goin'? Thanks for input.

I did try your suggestion about 'dir' in cygwin. In the /usr/bin directory it chokes on dir | more but it now works with dir | less.

The basic problem, however, is that cygwin links /usr/bin to /bin via the cygwin dll. I read an article on how to remount /usr/bin, supposedly to break the link and mount it on it's own. I'm a little more comfortable with that now and I might try remounting /usr/bin.
