`find /c/ -name libstdc++-6.dll` shows results, but not `find / -name libstdc++-6.dll`

Andrew Pennebaker
There are more than a few copies of libstdc++-6.dll scattered across my system (yak shaving for https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=84949), so I'm trying to find them all and analyze them. I know of one in my Strawberry Perl directory, but I don't know everywhere else they are, so I'm invoking find.

When I invoke find on root, it shows no results.

Trace:

$ find /c/ -name libstdc++-6.dll
find: /c/329151337f553c64ed411a/amd64: Permission denied
find: /c/329151337f553c64ed411a/i386: Not enough memory
find: /c/cygwin/home/jswogger/.ssh: Permission denied
/c/DevKit/mingw/bin/libstdc++-6.dll
...

$ find / -name libstdc++-6.dll
$

I suspect this is due to /c/ being all part of the magical Windows-Unix path translation, because the c directory is not present in:

$ ls -Ahl /
