Call it guesswork or an assumption if you like, but I think he's using a TCP
socket! Wasn't there a thread like this just recently that Corinna was
helping someone with a problem and it was to do with some kind of "winsock
handles aren't quite like other handles when it comes to duplicating them"
problem? I'll have a search through my old emails and see if I can find it.
Hikaru, are you fully up-to-date with the latest Cygwin DLL? And is it
possible for you to strip down your code to a tiny testcase using just the
minimal code to open the socket, accept the connection, fork the child and
call _exit, so that hopefully we can reproduce the problem?
