RE: ssh problem cygheap_fixup_in_child

Thanks for the pointer, I had already seen the mail searching through
the lists for a solution.

Unfortunatley doing a windows update to 'fix' it isnt an option for me,
this is a 'locked down' restricted XP build on work laptop. I was hoping
perhaps there was more info out there on what the problem is and wether
I can do anything specific to work around or correct it. Also, I had no
problems untill I moved to 1.5.10 a few days ago and was wondering if
anything was known in 1.5.10 to cause the problem.

In the meantime Ill just have to use a windows ssh client ://

Thanks for your time :)
