No need to reboot. Just make sure the syslogd is started, it should

To make sure syslog works, just

$ syslog hello
$ tail /var/log/messages

Yes, XP Home at home and XP Pro at work. Same segfault on both.

You are right. I check on my work machine where .rhosts exists
and it does have permission 644. Sorry.

Maybe OK. Cygwin "ls -l" does not show the whole true. I guess Windows
ACL shows the truth but I try to avoid changing them. Always get
a feeling of sinking in quicksand.
