problem with 20010701 snapshot

I have a big problem with the latest snapshot (20010701).  I don't
have much to report, but I thought I should make it known, in case
it's news.


	On NT4, just yesterday I updated to the latest net release.  I
	had been using quite an old release, but most things worked,
	and I didn't want to risk breaking anything -- it's my office
	machine.  I upgraded out of obligation as FAQ maintainer, so I
	could look at my own installation as a reference.

	Once I restored my configuration details (/etc/passwd
	containing a custom domain login id, for example), I was able
	to login just fine.

	I haven't been able to get /usr/bin/rsync working though, which
	motivated me to try the latest snapshot.

Upon installing
cygwin-inst-20010701.tar.bz2, when trying to telnet in, I get:

> starksb@mozart$ telnet bryce.dhcp

Here is C:\WINNT\system32\login.exe.stackdump on bryce.dhcp:

Does this mean anything to anyone?  I'm off for a conference in a few
days, for which I'm not yet prepared, so I don't really have time to
debug this.  When I restored the release 1.3.2 cygwin1.dll, all was
well again (w.r.t. login, anyway).  'CYGWIN' is empty.

(I still can't get rsync-2.4.6 working, but that's for another thread
on another list...)

Sorry if I'm not being very helpful here.  If it's still a problem
when I return in a couple weeks I'll spend more time on it.
