You should be good to go -- login using the following:

    $ ssh -p 2222

To reproduce the problem, do the following:

    $ cd src/python-2.1.1
    $ PYTHONPATH= ./python.exe -tt Lib/test/ -l test_threadedtempfile

You may have to run the python command a few time before it hangs.

Once it hangs, you should see a backtrace in gdb as follows:

I set up a Cygwin CVS sandbox which you can enter using the following:

    $ ce cygwin # the "e" is not a typo

The above will cd you to the right place and set up the necessary
environment variables to access Cygwin CVS.  Let me know if you do a
build and I'll switch the Cygwin DLL as soon as possible.
