Oh, I understand that part. It's the same reason we do proper
matching on .htaccess files on web site configuration. On a web site
with a large nested tree, it is definitely a performance hit if it needs
to check every single folder, starting from / , when the file only
exists in the user's web space and down.

Ok, the suggested fix is to grab the unicode aware cygwin file. I'm
assuming that's acceptable.
