Re: New snapshot 12/23 and xemacs-success

I disagree. For the first time in about three months, XEmacs (along
with Gnus using a whole bunch of child processes) works almost
fine. That is, the network connections opened by Gnus, openssl, and
starttls stay open longer than ten seconds and don't block XEmacs when
it tries to read from or close these connections. Thank you for that.

But XEmacs (21.4.13) still crashes the moment one exits Gnus. This is
probably related to XEmacs shutting down the child processes mentioned

Also, keychain or ssh-agent don't work properly with this
snapshot. Keychain starts up ssh-agent, but no subsequent ssh (or
ssh-add) operations can communicate with the started agent.

I'd send my full cygcheck output, but cygcheck won't run properly,
perhaps because I have cygwin installed at "C:\Program Files\cygwin,"
with a space in the path. I know this space is discouraged by the
installer, but just about every cygwin program works fine with this
configuration, and has for the last few years.

Here's a cygcheck sample, in this case running against the "blessed"

| 'C:\Program' is not recognized as an internal or external command,

| Output from C:\Program Files\cygwin\bin\id.exe (nontsec)

After that, cygcheck crashes and generates the Windows XP error
reporting dialog ("cygcheck.exe has encountered a problem and needs to
close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.")
