Nothing that seems useful there, just a few notes about progress reports:

: Shall I push this patch? (1/1)  [ynWsfvplxdaqjk], or ? for help: Leaving progress reports off.
: y
: Reenabling progress reports.
: Disabling progress reports...
: darcs apply --all --repodir C:/tuomov/project-archive/darcs/ion-3 --debug
: realdarcs.exe: darcs: runInteractiveProcess: does not exist (No such file or directory)

Yes, when I just want a cygwin environment for code/tex/etc. 
instead of a hybrid.

It has something. (NTFS has reparse points; not sure if they're the 
same as .lnk files.) For some reason Cygwin doesn't like the .lnk files,
and Windows doesn't like the symlinks Cygwin makes.
