Re: bash lockup

I see this all the time, too (in Win98se).  WINOLDAP
seems to be how Windows handles the cygwin console. 
It also uses it for win95cmd.  And it is there even
when nothing is locked up.  Windows doesn't seem to

Don't think of it as a problem or bug (or even a
"feature"); think of it as a behavior.  It's not that
hard to live with.
