Re: accept: Bad address

The latest Cygwin 64-bit release with the snapshot cygwin1.dll copied on top
of it shows an "accept: Bad address error" in 3 reproducible cases:

(a) The sshd daemon on receiving a connection request.
(b) The XWin server on receiving a connection request from an X11 client such
as xterm.
(c) The Python server receiving a TCP connection in the socket's accept().

A StackOverflow question 41018644 from December 2016 showed an example of the
bug with the Python server (c).

That last report is likely a different problem with similar symptoms.

There seems to have been a brief period of time in March where accept() was not
working properly.
^ in snapshots and Cygwin DLL built from source. Released Cygwin DLLs were not affected.

at the same time it wasn't working for me, also using X, on a personal build of
the Cygwin DLL from git source.  Denis later reported it working again, and I
can confirm it is working again for me.

One option is to use the previous snapshot, dated 20180220.  The other is to
wait until the next snapshot (after 20180309) is available.

Another option is to build your own Cygwin DLL from git source.

Corinna or somebody else with the chops/access, could we get a new Cygwin DLL
snapshot built when you have a chance?

Sorry for the deficient description in my earlier post.
