Wow, you have allot of Cygwin stuff installed considering that you only
want to use 'whois'.  That's not a problem though.  I was just 
surprised to see the *long* list of packages given this statement.

>After the whois I am noticing that the console stops receiving keyboard input.  I click the title bar minimize other open windows and it starts to receive keyboard input again.  And I can do ctrl-D which is what I want to do after whois.  Namely I want to logout.  This is the ONLY application I have installed in Windows 2000 that does this.  The ONLY one.

I guess I need to see your 'cygwin.bat' contents and your invocation of 
'whois'.  So far, I see nothing wrong and I cannot reproduce your problems
on this end.
