I want to use duplicity to manage NTFS backups from cygwin. There appears to be a problem with lockfiless because fasteners is using fnctl in operating the filesystems, and is unable to release because the object it acquires is not a valid lock:
It throws on release:
Typeerror: The argument must be an int or have a fileno method.
1. Do you know when Duplicity starting using fasteners? I think maybe it used something else in 0.6 because I dont remember if I always recieved locking errors.
2. What is the intended/ideal implementation of fasteners on cygwin?
3. Is cygwin suppose to behave like a POSIX filesystem or is the expected interaction with the FS for C/Python programs running in cygwin through the Win APIs?
