I may be wrong but I'm nearly certain that has been Corinna's goal from
the start.  She is sometimes just a little too M.  A lot of her
seemingly tireless efforts in getting Cygwin working are actually
very subtle attempts to leave systems inoperational.
Nah, that's Microsoft's job.


Yes, I'm sure she's diabolical that way (I guess M stands for methodical or
meticulous).  It must be the long nights spent slaving over Cygwin code has
warped her thinking into providing helpful things like the automatic rebaseall
feature (thank you Corina, your work has not been unappreciated) which has
long been needed.

:) :) :)

I don't know, I'd still feel better if there was an option to make it
not automatic, like providing a new checkbox at the end of setup "Rebase
DLLs after setup completes". It should probably be ticked by default for
most users.

Murphy's Law says your first fork failure ever comes within minutes of disabling automatic rebase after a setup run ;)

I've had rebase errors show up after setup installed only new packages, even when the process calling fork() seemed to have nothing whatsoever to do with those packages.
