Ok.  I'll add this.

However, your example doesn't make any sense to me.  I use the techniques
in how-to-debug-cygwin.txt and I've never had any problems.  There should
never issue of a hanging cygwin if you use these techniques.

If I think that a patch is just due to someone not understanding how to
use existing tools, which could arguably be the case here, then I will
resist adding it to the sources.

However, if a few people find this useful, I'll add it.  Just to be
clear, though, I don't want to see the macro in any checked in code.
