You are replying to a thread with the subject "1.3.20".  It makes no
sense for you to be using 1.3.19 sources to track down your problem.
Doesn't it make sense that there is a possibility that whatever problem
you're experiencing might already be solved in CVS?

If you did debug your problem and managed to come up with a patch, then,
again, it *makes no sense* for you to provide a patch against older
sources.  There is, once again, a likelihood that your patch wouldn't
apply against the newer sources.

That's because the version tags are for my benefit.  They are not intended
for checking out a cygwin release.  As Max has pointed out, to do that, I'd
have to tag large parts of the sourceware repository.
