If would like to contribute this, then I will add it to my next release.

Search the mailing list for the solution to the above.  Your problem is
*not* caused by upgrading to postgresql-7.2-2.

Sigh...  You can never please everyone.  I almost held off releasing
postgresql-7.2-2, but I didn't want to wait an unknown amount of time
for the next Cygwin release.  I guess that I could have marked the
release "test".

See above.

See above.

See above.

No, I would not "pressure" anyone.  You *do* realize that people
contribute their time and packages.  Right?

Did I say, "see above?"

Gee thanks.  It's email such as this one sent privately, that make me
want to de-contribute packages.  Sigh...
