You mean a patch to put it back the way it was before?  Previously,
although there was a CYGWIN conditional in pexecute.c it was not
actually used in the normal case unless the user specifically defined
_WIN32.  Perhaps, that's not an ideal situation but this change
introduces a change in behavior for cygwin since it is now exercising
code that previously had not been commonly used.
