Welp, looks like I (probably) lose that hand (happily). Using:
CYGWIN_NT-5.1 DFW5RB41 1.5.20s(0.155/4/2) 20060418 12:31:05 i686 Cygwin
with a /tmp mounted as text mode works fine for a configure, build, and
install of wxWindows. The configure does most of the temp file
machinations, with about 2000 add, modify, and remove events in the /tmp
directory, as reported by a program I have for monitoring such things.
