Re: debugging cygwin

Umm, sorry.  That's what I get for writing a message and then coming back
to change some part of it (with some time in between).  I meant that once
you have the snapshot DLL in place, you don't need to stop any running
processes to use the .dbg file (as you would if you had to substitute the
debugging version of the DLL).  Sorry for any confusion it caused.

As CGF said, the snapshots are stable.  You have to stop all the running
processes to replace the DLL (this probably stems from the confusion I
mentioned above).
