First of all, I tested this already under the 8.1 preview and added code
to Cygwin to support the changes in the i686 and x86_64 code prior to
the 1.7.25 release.

Second, I checked if it still works on 8.1 RTM on i686 as well as on x64
natively and under WOW64, and none printed the above message.

Third, I just debugged the Cygwin code step-by-step under WOW64.  The OS
still uses the same method as in the 8.1 preview so the code is still
working as expected, as far as I can see.

Are you *sure* you're running Cygwin 1.7.25 and not an older version?
