syntax:  machine:~user$ cd \


That SHOULD take me to \volume1\


However what happens is terminal hangs at > and does nothing and I remain in \volume1\users\homedirectory


so I tired BASH.  Same thing. Terminal just hangs as if it doesn't know what to do.


I've verified that all three of my Mac's are doing the same thing after this weekend.  The only reason I was alerted to this, is a Firend called me with the same problem and asked if the syntax was correct.


cd .. seems to work but only one level at a time where as cd \ would take you right to volume1.
