I am not going to be creating any CDs.  Sorry.

I don't know.

If you would like to download the latest cygwin sources you can go to .

In case it wasn't clear from the email that you received and from the
project web page, this mailing list is strictly not a forum for
reporting bugs.  It is intended that there be a certain amount of
participation in any problems that are uncovered.  Finding a potential
bug and then pointing us at sources is not going to be too fruitful.

While I do want cygwin to be as robust as possible, it is not likely that
I (or DJ, I assume) will have enough time to investigate something that
takes as much setup as this seems to entail.

Possibly somebody else will be interested in debugging this, but I would
guess that this will probably need to either debug this or find someone
else who will.
