I believe that all of the above have been fixed except 1 and 2.

I'm willing to let cygwin out the door with 1 since I don't think I'm going
to be getting any high-quality feedback anytime soon.  It's been more than
a week and we're still in the "It works fine with I drop back to 1.3.2"

Of course, if anyone has a serial connection to a windows system that would
allow them to check out this behavior, it would be appreciated.
