  Actually, we will:

  It controls whether or not Windows explorer retains the DLLs that implement COM objects that implement shell folders and extensions in memory after the COM object is released (and in particular, at CoFreeUnusedLibraries time after the COM object is released).

  It does not influence the Cygwin dll.  The cygwin dll will be unloaded and replaceable as soon as all cygwin processes are terminated.  The main thing is to watch out for the occasional problem caused by cygwin services that you installed experimentally using one of the *-config scripts long long ago and forgot all about....

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
