is there any chance that we get a fix in the next couple of weeks?
I'm really annoyed about all these reports of hanging processes over
ssh due to the pipe changes.  The only application which seems to
work better to date is apparently the Cygwin version of rsync.

If we don't get a patch, I'm inclined to revert the pipe patch before
we release 1.5.13.  IMHO it's not worth to have one application working
in favorite of tons of other applications.

Btw., didn't you announce more pipe patches yet to come?  Is it possible
that you already have a patch which will get that working again?  I'm
still hoping for something more satisfying than reverting...
