Probably because I did not even see the post at the time. (While I try
to keep up with Cygwin email, I also get hundreds of other mails per
day, and when Cygwin is limited to my free time, sometimes things slip
through the cracks).  In life, and therefore in open source, it is often
that the squeaky wheel gets the grease; if something isn't getting the
attention you think it deserves, it is not bad to ping the thread to
bring it back to the forefront.

Thanks for the ping. I've now replied to that thread to ask upstream
bash for help in deciphering if Chet, who wrote the code, might be aware
of why it is breaking things.

That said, I still hope to get a closer look at it myself when I have a
nice chunk of time; but the trick is still getting that nice chunk of time.
