Ough, thanx! My problem was different, but this question solved my
problem (in some way)! 8-) When I run on w95 my programm built under WNT
(with cygwin-b20) everything seems to be alright. But.. still, the program
built under w95 doesn't work (it crashes while loading or initializing
pthreads.dll I think - it crashes EVEN if I do not call any function from
pthreads library. It crashes when I link it with libpthreads32.a

So.. as I see.. using pthreads32 with cygwin is on my own responsibility

But I still may use W95 instead of W98 I hope?
