If that is the case, would anybody mind if I posted a (simple) patch to
openSSH code which added a timeout to the call(s) to select()?  If I do
that, will the patch be incorporated into the cygwin release of
openSSH?  Is there some way to feed that patch back to the openSSH
development team?

(Note, I haven't tried this patch yet -- I just thought of it when I was
posting my original email last night -- so the patch may not be as
"simple" as I envisioned).
