Just quote the ":".
Hmmm, I think that this as inconvenient as using the /cygdrive/<drive_letter>/
method. I'm writing such pathnames tons of times during a day. If I'd have to
type these two quotes each time, it would slow down me significantly -
since the quotes require to use shift+key.
So, I'd really much prefer to be able to avoid this.
Wouldn't it be possible to make it customizeable - let's say by means of an
environment variable. Such a change would be straight forward - I believe.
