1. Is Rob still maintaining the pthreads related stuff ?
In an other message he resigned from cygserver. Does this mean pthreads
too ? I have one patch pending that implements cancellation that has
not been reviewed yet and i have 2 others in my queue, one regarding
pthread_keys(TLS) that is IMHO neccessary if gcc will switch to posix
threads (i have already build my gcc-2.95.3-5 with posix threads and got
no problems yet) and a new mutex implementation that is more posix
compliant and makes no distinction between 9x and NT.
I would be glad to get these into the official DLL.

2. Why is my new-cygwin1.dll build from source about 100k smaller than the
official cygwin1.dll ?
