Re: /dev/console : permission denied -- SOMEWHAT RESOLVED

Hahaha... No, you need not. I think it is implied. :)
Do I have to add a disclaimer to every mail and irc message on this
"I don't know"
Anyway, after many headaches and not enough time to get too deep into
the code... I decided to do a fresh install.
I completely removed Cygwin and re-installed using Henrik Bengtsson's
Fantastic technique (http://www.maths.lth.se/help/windows/cygwin/). And
the /dev/console : permission denied problem has faded into oblivion.
SOMEWHAT RESOLVED means that, although I cannot say for certain what
caused that nastiness... I want to believe that it was due to
un-synchronized installation of various packages.
When the install was synchronized (per Henrik's method), the problem is
not rearing its head.
Thanks for everyone's input.
This did not resolve the crash that's happening with Cygcheck -svr
though... Suppose I'm constrained to switch to CMD.EXE when I need to
run it. :(

Win-less Cyg! ;) --
