afaics, your last changes to cygheap include close_all_files () fix,
they just didn't mention it in ChangeLog. I'm running a system with
them for a couple of days now, and doesn't experience any "lockups"
(which were probably because of this bug
http://sources.redhat.com/ml/cygwin-patches/2001-q3/msg00049.html ) or
any problems.
