RE: cygwin 1.5.20-1 problem writing to stdout

The cygwin1-20060706.dll.bz2 snapshot seems to have fixed the problem.
Thanx for the quick turnaround!

Thanks for the test case.

This problem was caused by a bug that I introduced in cygwin a while
ago.  It should be fixed in the next snapshot.

This is a serious enough problem that I think a new 1.5.21 version of
cygwin is warranted.  I'll probably be doing that soon if you can confirm
that this fixes your problem.
