No, somebody on the xemcs list said "cygwin-xxxx fixes this other 
problem in bash related to cygdrive.  MAYBE it also fixes our xemacs 
problem which is related to cygdrive.  Can somebody check?"

And somebody DID check -- and reported "Nope, doesn't fix it"

End of story.

I think that debugging is ongoing right now.  (But cygwin IS a moving 
target; you can't blame folks for *hoping* that the fix for problem A 
will also nail problem B...and delaying their debug efforts until after 
they get the new kernel with the A-fix.
