pipes (with ssh for example) on XP SP2.
With the release of the 1.5.12 cygwin1.dll, downgrading is no longer an
option...there are dependencies that prevent rolling the dll back.
Which dependencies prevent you from using 1.5.11? I see nothing of matter.
Rolling back to 1.5.11 is fine...in terms of dependencies, but 1.5.11, now
the oldest avaliable via setup, has the hanging problem with native unison
et. al. The latest working version with native unison was IIRC 1.5.10-3 and
this version does have dependencies problems with current versions of other
I am asking my question about resolution of the native unison hanging
problem because there was discussion by Corinna and Chris on cygwin-patches
about possibly working around the problem until fixed. This used to work for
the last few years.
Is it intended for this to continue to work?
Before I ask for help to build a patched (unpatched?) cygwin1.dll, I was
hoping to find out what I should expect. I would not take lightly, trying to
maintain a special dll version. In the earlier discussions, it sounded like
Corinna could reproduce the problem when asking if part of some recent pipe
changes should be reverted until a long term fix was found. I don't mind
temporarily making a special cygwin1.dll, but long term I wouldn't want to
