How about

  wfontdir=`cygpath -w $fontdir`
  mount -bfs $wfontdir $fontdir 2> /dev/null || mount -bfu $wfontdir $fontdir

IOW, create a system mount in binary mode on the font directory,
disregarding any existing mount on the same place.  If the user is not
allowed to create a system mount, create a user mount instead.

This would break when there already is a user mount in text mode.
That seems pretty unlikely, though.

so long, benny
