Cygwin: mkdir fails on UNC pathnames

Hi all,
mkdir fails to create UNC pathnames properly on Winnt/Cygwin.

    $ net use \* '\\server\share' 'passwd'
    [share info displayed]

    $ type mkdir
    mkdir is hashed (/usr/bin/mkdir)

    $ mkdir -p //server/share/some/nonexistent/directory
    mkdir: cannot create directory `//server/share/some/nonexistent/directory': 
No such file or directory

    $ ls -l //server/share/some/
    ls: //server/share/some/: No such file or directory
Instead a local path has been created:
    $ ls -l /server/share/some/
    total 0
    drwxrwxrwx    2 ralf     Kein            0 Jun 20 08:59 nonexistent

Creating those pathes via the mount-points works OK.
   $ mkdir -p k:/some/nonexistent/directory
   $ mkdir -p /k/some/nonexistent/directory
