bug#13921: 24.2; Misbehavior of expand-file-name on Cygwin with Emacs 24


From: Barry OReilly
Subject: bug#13921: 24.2; Misbehavior of expand-file-name on Cygwin with Emacs 24.2
Date: Sun, 10 Mar 2013 22:03:31 -0400

When I attempted to build CEDET from their bzr trunk (revno 8498), the build failed due to expand-file-name function returning an incorrect "d:" prefix.  Under other conditions expand-file-name returns the correct "c:" prefix.  Some command line IO will illustrate:

[CEDET build issues this:]
 emacs -batch --no-site-file --eval '(setq debug-on-error t)' -l "../../cedet-remove-builtin.el" -L . --eval '(progn (require (quote cedet-compat)) (require (quote mode-local)))' -L ../eieio/ -L ./ -L ./ --eval '(progn  (setq generated-autoload-file "/home/epich/sw/cedet/lisp/cedet/loaddefs.el"))' -f batch-update-autoloads /home/epich/sw/cedet/lisp/cedet
Debugger entered--Lisp error: (file-error "Opening output file" "no such file or directory" "d:/home/epich/sw/cedet/lisp/cedet/loaddefs.el")
  write-region(";;; loaddefs.el --- automatically extracted autoloads\n;;\n;;; Code:\n\n\f\n(provide 'loaddefs)\n;; Local Variables:\n;; version-control: never\n;; no-byte-compile: t\n;; no-update-autoloads: t\n;; coding: utf-8\n;; End:\n;;; loaddefs.el ends here\n" nil "d:/home/epich/sw/cedet/lisp/cedet/loaddefs.el")
  autoload-ensure-default-file("d:/home/epich/sw/cedet/lisp/cedet/loaddefs.el")
  autoload-find-generated-file()
  update-directory-autoloads("/home/epich/sw/cedet/lisp/cedet")
  apply(update-directory-autoloads "/home/epich/sw/cedet/lisp/cedet")
  batch-update-autoloads()
  command-line-1(("--eval" "(setq debug-on-error t)" "-l" "../../cedet-remove-builtin.el" "-L" "." "--eval" "(progn (require (quote cedet-compat)) (require (quote mode-local)))" "-L" "../eieio/" "-L" "./" "-L" "./" "--eval" "(progn  (setq generated-autoload-file \"/home/epich/sw/cedet/lisp/cedet/loaddefs.el\"))" "-f" "batch-update-autoloads" "/home/epich/sw/cedet/lisp/cedet"))
  command-line()
  normal-top-level()

Comparing the backtrace above with the source code, it's evident expand-file-name prepended the "d:" to the filename to get: "d:/home/epich/sw/cedet/lisp/cedet/loaddefs.el".

However, when I evaluate (expand-file-name "/home/epich/sw/cedet/lisp/cedet") in the the scratch, I get "c:/home/epich/sw/cedet/lisp/cedet".  I edited CEDET's Emacs command above to exclude -f batch-update-autoloads and added a debug statement:

emacs -batch --no-site-file --eval '(setq debug-on-error t)' -l "../../cedet-remove-builtin.el" -L . --eval '(progn (require (quote cedet-compat)) (require (quote mode-local)))' -L ../eieio/ -L ./ -L ./ --eval '(progn  (setq generated-autoload-file "/home/epich/sw/cedet/lisp/cedet/loaddefs.el") (message "DEBUG: expanded file name is %s" (expand-file-name "/home/epich/sw/cedet/lisp/cedet")))' /home/epich/sw/cedet/lisp/cedet
DEBUG: expanded file name is c:/home/epich/sw/cedet/lisp/cedet

This is as far as I investigated the bug.

I'm using the Emacs 24.2 Windows distribution, invoked within Cygwin:

address@hidden ~/sw/cedet/lisp/cedet $ ls -l `which emacs`
