FWIW, after six years, it suddenly occurred to me how to easily work
around this Windows limitation in cygwin. So, I have checked in some
code to rectify this behavior.
I'm trying to generate a snapshot but I just updated my gcc to 3.3.1
and it is not a given that it will work right. I should have something
up eventually. Any snapshot greater than or equal to 2003-08-08 should
have this fix in it.
