I ran across a tool called "Trader's Little Helper" at
http://thor.prohosting.com/roh0205/ that includes the cygwin1.dll, but
doesn't provide source code. Even worse, it puts cygwin1.dll in C:\WINDOWS!
I then did a search of my hard drive for other copies and was surprised
to find a few more. They are apparently installed to get support for the
shorten command-line tool (http://shnutils.freeshell.org/shorten/).
The packages that included a cygwin1.dll were:
* Trader's Little Helper: http://thor.prohosting.com/roh0205/
* The shorten command-line tool: http://shnutils.freeshell.org/shorten/
* The Nero SHN plug-in: http://neroplugins.cd-rw.org/
* The dBpowerAMP SHN codec:
