This looks pretty good to me.

How about something like this, though:

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

Just to ensure that there is no user mount?

Btw, I like the use of the fontdir variable in this context.  It's a
little thing, but...
