I hope that someone else may be able to step forward and point to some
of these unreported bugs that all of his friends have seen.  Obviously
we can't fix what we don't know about.

I am now quite frustrated to know that my product is riddled with bugs
and people are complaining about it without trying to do anything
towards actively fixing them.

It's times like these that I fantasize about just doing a "rm -r
~ftp/pub/cygwin" on sources.redhat.com, turning off the cygwin mailing
lists and just sticking with my real job.

Why do I bother?
