Re: Segfault under cygwin 1.7.62

OK.  It's possible that there remain problems in Cygwin, but the
probability of an XEmacs bug is increasing.  New backtraces would be
useful, I think, unless Aidan has a guess offhand.

That could be a Cygwin or GCC problem then, I don't see why running
under GDB would prevent the crash.

That could be memory corruption; I don't see where keystrokes would be
coming in.  Maybe Aidan knows.

That should not affect XEmacs behavior.  If changing the locale
variables makes a difference, then it's in Cygwin, I think.
