I made some more changes to the tty code to eliminate a long-standing
handle leak when CYGWIN=tty. I also *think* I eliminated a source
of opened tty handles but I haven't checked the inetd case and need
to go back to doing something besides working on cygwin.
I haven't been able to duplicate any problems with exim on any of my
NT-like systems, which is hardly surprising, since I know nothing about
it or how to set it up.
