This is by design now as described in the aforementioned posting.  If
you want to see the command line of a Cygwin application called by
another Cygwin application, see /proc/$pid/cmdline.

Would a patch to restore the previous operation based on a $CYGWIN
variable setting be acceptable?

I actually had the same thought and have a patch waiting for Corinna's
comment sitting in my sandbox.

This is checked in.  The CYGWIN environment variable keyword is 'wincmdln'.

Thank you, that is much appreciated.

32 and 64 bit snapshots are uploaded.

I'll test (probably 32-bit only) and report if any problems appear.
