Whew! Thanks for doing all the testing, and getting back to me
so quickly ...

Ah, I think that might be it. I remember running into that a while ago, 
and hadn't really kept up. I'll keep on checking. For now, I'm going to
release this snapshot for both Cygwin and Mingw, and hope things go 
better. I'd like to hear back from a few more people who're running
tests on other software before I'd do that of course.
