This is not a "cygwin" developer issue. Please remove the cygwin-developers
address when responding. Rule of thumb if you are not involved with developing
cygwin then you probably shouldn't be posting to cygwin-developers. If you are
helping with developing cygwin then the only posts to the cygwin-developers
list should be questions and patches concerning the cygwin source code.
