Sorry, Corinna, I have to disagree with you here.
The cygcheck output was adequate to debug the problem in this case.
Personally, I would rather that people forego sending unsolicited strace
output entirely rather than either just blithely sending a large
attachment or, IMO, worse, thinking that they understand the output and
snipping the out the "irrelevant" parts.
i.e., if no one has asked you for an strace, then don't send it.
YMMV but I think that policy cuts down on mailing list bandwidth.
