Re: emacs no longer works for me under cygwin

I'm running 64bit Windows 7, a relatively new OS install.  I've been
using the 64bit version of Cygwin for about a month now on this

I haven't changed any part of my cygwin/emacs configuration in the
past few weeks but starting today, emacs has been in a state where it
will not load directories in dired and will not open most text files.
It seems that only text files with a .txt extension will open in emacs

I've tried running "emacs <filename>" and ctrl-x ctrl-f from a running
emacs instance.  The operation appears to hang emacs indefinitely.

I did accept a few Windows updates when I rebooted last night d but
otherwise I'm not aware of any other changes that could have caused
this problem.

I love Cygwin btw and very much appreciate everything you (the Cygwin
team) do for this project.

This is a known issue and has been fixed in the test release of emacs.  See

Maybe I should make that the current release; it does seem to be pretty stable.
