What about plain files?   Do the things that apparently don't exist
actually exist?  Is there a difference in the cases of the names?

Can you reference ./mp3 (spelled exactly like that, with the leading
dot-slash) from the same working directory?

I haven't got access to FreeBSD-* or to Cygwin, so I probably won't be
able to reproduce this problem.  You might actually have more luck
asking on the Cygwin mailing list, because they're familiar with all
the funny things that have to be done to make Cygwinlook like Unix.

Does the problem happen if you run find on the local disk of the
Cygwin box?  What about if you run find against a Samba sever running
something other than FreeBSD, or if you run it against an installation
of Samba with the default configuration or a different version of

Basically, what I'm trying to ask here, is for you to change the
components of the problem in order to try to either localise the
problem or to more specifically identify the components that are
having an unfortunate interaction.

See above for some ideas.  If strace or ltrace work on Cygwin, those
might provide useful diagnostics.   Also, try asking for help on the
Cygwin mailing list.
