The new behavior is different, but the problem is not yet fixed.
Here's what happened:

1. Rather than building cygwin1.dll from CVS, I waited until Corinna
had cut a new snapshot.  I downloaded cygwin1-20091012.dll.bz2 and
installed it.  'uname -a' reports "CYGWIN_NT-5.1 gandalf-xp
1.7.0s(0.215/5/3) 20091012 10:21:06 i686 Cygwin".

2. At the same time, I noticed that Aidan checked in some fixes for
the mule tests, so I upgraded to those.

3. I fired up a build of the new XEmacs sources, running against the
new cygwin1.dll.  When I run 'make check' against that XEmacs, I get
the now-familiar failure:

Testing /usr/local/src/xemacs-21.5-test-2009-10-12-mule/tests/automated/mule-tests.el...
FAIL: Assertion failed: (file-exists-p name2)
FAIL: Assertion failed: (equal (file-truename name2) name1)

Fatal error: assertion failed, file
/usr/local/src/xemacs-21.5-test-2009-10-12-mule/src/unicode.c, line
2358, RECORD_TYPEP (obj, lrecord_type_charset)
make[1]: *** [check] Segmentation fault (core dumped)
make[1]: Leaving directory
make: *** [check] Error 2

4.  But when I try to run that XEmacs under gdb, I get different
results: gdb doesn't detect a segfault, and the test seems to run to


SUMMARY for /usr/local/build/xemacs-21.5-test-2009-10-12-mule/tests/automated/mule-tests.el:

	    0 errors that should have been generated, but weren't
	    0 wrong-error failures
	    0 missing-message failures
	    0 other failures

but I get the following messages (read from bottom to top):

Test suite execution failed unexpectedly.

Note the "Test suite execution failed unexpectedly." message.

I see similar results with a version of XEmacs built without Aidan's
changes: crash at the command line when running 'make check' but no
crash under gdb.

Do I need some additional cygwin changes other than the dll?  Corinna
- I noticed that you changed the "DEFAULT_LOCALE" in
include/cygwin/config.h (DEFAULT_LOCALE) to  "C.UTF-8". Do I need to
import that change into my compile-time environment somehow?  Or is
there an environment variable that needs to be set to alter runtime
