Which recipe? The thread talks about proposed patch. By looking at the
announcements, you may find that the patch has never been applied to
the main cygwin sources. So you can either apply it yourself and build
your own version of cygwin1.dll or wait for this patch to be applied.
And no, i don't know when it's supposed to be, and whether author's
assignment reached Redhat.
