To the Cygwin mailing list:
Back in January, Thomas Baker (who is BCC'd on this) posted a question
about a large call to cp giving an error message about not being able
to create a hard link. Ref:
I've just upgraded cygwin from 1.3.22-1 (March 18, 2003) to a couple
of different 1.5.x versions, including 1.5.5-1 (Sept 20, 2003), and
have started getting this error.
It happens in a build script that is copying about 30 directories that
contain around 3000 files in total.
Does anyone know what's going wrong here, or any workarounds other
than "don't upgrade"?
