Yes, I'm aware of the 64-bit version of cygwin.  I wasn't aware of this
hiccup between 32 and 64-bit apps (that the former can't see the latter). 
All the more reason to move to 64-bit sooner rather than later.  When I
installed the 32-bit cygwin, it was some time ago, when I was concerned
about compatibility with all things 32-bit.  Now that 64-bit is much more
prevalent, I the tides have shifted.

Thank you, Larry.
