"I do hereby verify" that the latest snapshot, i.e:
$ cygcheck -svr | grep -i cygwin1
948k 2003/09/14 C:\Program\cygwin\bin\cygwin1.dll - os=4.0 img=1.0 sys=4.0
"cygwin1.dll" v0.0 ts=2003/9/14 4:09
indeed makes find behave as it should.
My tests aren't that deep one could expect though; I've run my
'find_check'-script on the three MSDN CD's so far.
I'll probably be using other related scripting henceforth RSN(tm), which
leads to more 'implied testing'.

I assume that should be UTC-4. Then we're '5 hours apart' - 05:00 for you
is 10:00 for me - i.e. I was less than an hour 'quick' checking for the
snapshot, assuming it was published at 5 in the morning.
Being tired and generally impatient is my excuse for this - 'brain
performance' is lowered considerably in the late hours ;-7 .

I am impatient too, so you I believe I have full recognition of the
problem... I was very disappointed (just like a child ;-] - I know) when I
couldn't find the 'famous' snapshot.
 I'd day this is a sickness of our time. Waiting for more than a number
of seconds has become something that is hard, for a number of people. Me
;-) I'm afraid of using faster computers than my own, because then I'll
grow impatient on it - as I am currently stuck with it. But then, I have
'practice' of running relatively slow computers; An MC68060 based Amiga, I
still use it, mostly for burning CD's of backups and digital image
collections. (I have digital photo as one of my more time consuming
