For the sake of completeness I want to flag the following issue I meat on Cygwin.

Trying to edit e remote file:

emacs -Q &
C-x C-f /ftp:address@hidden:foo.txt
Password for address@hidden:...

it works just fine on GNU/Linux Kubuntu 10.04, but HANGS/FREEZES on Cygwin :(, though it uses 0% CPU (the cursor becomes a clock). I can recover Emacs with C-g [*].

While it is hanging, I noticed that, on Cygwin, it uses (try?) the Windows FTP program NOT the one which comes with Cygwin! Indeed 'ps' shows the '.../system32/ftp' process.

Is this to be expected? Surely '.../system32/ftp' does not understand POSIX paths...

Emacs is 24.050 r101732.


[*] Notice that 'ftp.remotehost' does not accept ssh connection, so 'ftp' method is the last resource, I think.
