In Windows, there is a concept called working directory of another
drive. For example, in a cmd.exe windows, you can call
and although you are now still in C:, but if you call "D:" to go to the
D: drive, you will find yourself in d:\xyz.
In fact, Paths.get("d:").toAbsolutePath() will show it.
Now, I am about to write a jtreg test on it. However, I found in cygwin,
it's always D:\. If you call "cd d:/xyz", and "cd c:" back, working
directory of D: is D:\ instead of D:\xyz. That is to say, except for the
current drive. working directory of any other drive is always the root
Is there a way to change it? Or must I write a BAT file and call cmd.exe
/C to execute it?
