I think this may have been introduced with W2k SP4. I found the following
version of shlwapi.dll on my system:
$ ls -l /d/winnt/servicepackfiles/i386/shlwapi.dll
-rwx------+ 1 Administ None 289552 Jun 19 12:05
$ cygcheck /d/winnt/servicepackfiles/i386/shlwapi.dll
and there is no msvcrt dependence with this earlier version.
Does this fit with the hanging symptoms? i.e. if your postinstall
hangs, have you installed W2K SP4, or is your shlwapi dependent on
msvcrt, or is this just a red herring?
