Hi folks,

I just uploaded a new Cygwin 1.7 test release, 1.7.0-66.

If this doesn't introduce any new regressions, this will (probably)
be the last test release.

Bugfixes in relation to 1.7.0-65:

- Fix the problem that 64 bit DLLs are accidentally getting a ".exe"
  suffix when renaming them.

- Fix two potential socket handle leaks introduced in -64.

- Fix security vulnerability in gdtoa:

The next bugfix had been applied to 1.7.0-65 already.  I just forgot
to mention it:

- Fix a bug in the fast math tan() implementation for x87 FPUs.


- Q: How do I know that I'm running Cygwin 1.7.0-66?

  A: The `uname -v' command prints "2009-11-25 13:41"

Have fun,
