Can't go for 10 consecutive minutes without incurring the "Windows
Explorer has stopped working" glitch. Excruciating.
Maybe I shouldn't blame W7 for the weird Cygwin file mishandling. I
recently observed that every time the ".. stopped working" message
appears on screen, it is matched by the transient occurrence of a McAfee
icon in the taskbar. Of course, it being a work machine, I cannot
disable McAfee in order to research any links between strange Cygwin
behaviours and it. Just love workplace paranoia and the consequent
imposed protections: the cure is, always, so much worse than the disease.
