Thanks for posting the changelog entry. However, I still have a
In this changelog entry, and in the mail archive, I've seen many
references to a /timezone bias/ bug(fix). But, I haven't found anything
specifically addressing whether the following problem has been fixed:
* in cygwin B20.1, the zero point for the result of gettimeofday is

* this causes problems when trying to synch the clocks between
a unix box and a cygwin NT box.
