Remember, the problem only occurred with the latest cygwin and this older
version of Avantail. The same code compiled with Visual Studio always ran
fine. So, there is some interaction between cygwin1.dll and Aventail...
It may be, well I know NIS and ZoneAlarm do it, that some firewall software
install their own versions of winsock and maybe other dll's so they can
enhance their firewall code and intrusion detection. Don't know what
Aventail is but it may have done the same. Maybe just something else...but
who knows :-)
