What a clueless comment.

It is not "denial" to assert that an OS which allocates memory and doesn't
free it is broken.  If cygwin triggers a windows problem that does not mean
that it is a cygwin problem no matter how hard that is for you to understand.

I fix all sorts of problems in cygwin which are really windows problems but,
golly gee, if I can't duplicate them, I can't fix them.  And, my willingness
to debug some things is limited.  If it takes running a perl script every
five minutes for a day to duplicate the problem, then that is not something
that I'm going to do anytime soon.

This is not denial.  This is a refusal to take a large amount of my time
to find a workaround to a windows problem.
