Re: Fall back from Windows to cygwin PIDs

I haven't gotten any response from gdb-patches yet, so I thought I would
ping the cygwin list too.

I think this is a valuable addition since it adds functionality that
most UNIX users expect without changing current behavior.  I also saw a
posting (gdb or cygwin, I can't remember which) that said a patch for this
would probably be accepted if submitted.
