Alright, I'm on - despite a rough start!

How do I go about Pierre's pid patch?

I'm a total virgin at this. I'm afraid I need help, professional help!
Right now I'm looking at, as well as what ships 
with the binary and source distribution of the current cygwin bash.
Looks like bash2.x install in /usr/bin while bash3.x installs in 
/usr/local/bin. Is that ok?

As to Andrew Schulman's complaint about the "extra-space-after-the-prompt" 
bug (, first 
reported at, 
I believe to have fixed the problem. How do I about getting this fix (if we 
conclude that it is indeed working) back into mainstream bash?
