As a temporary solution, what happens if you mount the SMB share as a
drive and then use "/cygdrive/x/path" instead of the UNC style
"//machine/share/path"? If that made it work then it might indicate
that it's the path handling code somewhere (i.e. Apache not liking // as
a valid posix path) versus a permissions problem.
