It's interesting that for pipes to act "as they are supposed to" cygwin
now has to create up to three additional handles to try to mimic the way
UNIX does it.  And, IMO, linux does it right.

Um, if your XP was completely locked up then there is something wrong with
your XP.

There is no reason to assume that there is anything int the snapshot
that would fix this behavior since, AFAIK, it wasn't reported, and
the basic principle remains unchanged, regardless.
