Actually, no - I'd not looked at what the tests were doing. My smiley was
in case these tests should have been in the "expected failures" category,
with core developers knowing these tests failed, but noone had yet got
round to updating the test suite. Such horrors have been known to happen,
but I'm glad to see not with Cygwin.
Now I know I'd say it's yet another useful addition to the FAQ. PTC, I know -
I guess I could take a look at what's involved in generating a patch, though
it would take me far longer than anyone already familiar with updating the FAQ.
