expected, it did not alter the basic problem.
Let me be more concrete in my example. Here are the commands
I type at a tcsh prompt on a w2k box w/ cygwin:
% setenv TMP c:/temp
% C:/usr/local/vim/vim60/gvim.exe scp://wu//tmp/ss
A separate window is popped up in which the external scp
command is called. In that window the following messages
C:\WINNT\system32\cmd.exe /c scp wu:/tmp/ss c:\temp\VIA4.tmp
ssh: c: No address associated with hostname
Hit any key to close this window...
As you can see, the request to the remote host wu is made
for the file /tmp/ss. My setting TMP is shown to be effective
by the use of c:\temp. Setting shellslash does result in
the temporary file switching from c:\temp\VIA4.tmp to
C:/temp/VIA4.tmp. However, the leading "c:" is still present
and still confusing scp.
