There's another one for the list then I guess. Ouch. Nothing's worse than

Yep. The "kernel" of cygwin is implemented as a DLL, /bin/cygwin1.dll, and
is shipped in the "cygwin" setup package (along with a few essential related
files). You can use setup.exe to wind it forward or back.

Been running it for several years now, both free and for the past couple
paid-for versions, on many and varied cygwin hosts. No problems. Did once
get a false positive on a couple of dlls, but <shrugs> can happen to anybody;
notified grisoft, fetched them back from the virus vault, next update fixed
the bad detect. Thoroughly impressed by the reliability and low overhead.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
