has anyone run the test suite recently?

Egor, there seems to be something amiss with this scheme then, since (as
Norman Vine also mentioned) "make check" fails some tests if the current
1.3.10-1 cygwin1.dll is installed, while it passes all the tests if the
newly built cygwin1.dll is installed instead. (This is with CVS HEAD as of
12 hours ago.)

I'm attaching the obj/i686-ps-cygwin/testsuite/testsuite/winsup.log from
such a failing run. Here's the (relevant) differences in that file from a
failing to a successful run:

Note that on the failing run, I also get several dialogue boxes popping up
with the usual windows "foo.exe has generated errors and will be closed by
windows" etc. Of these, the first was for sh.exe, which happens before the
four failures shown above, and for that I also got a (rather empty)

Exception: STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION at eip=00000000

Stack trace:

End of stack trace

Then there were four dialogues popped up, each for test.exe, at the point at
which the four failures occurred. I got no stackdumps for these.

There's too much in this that I don't know anything about, so I'm not going
to investigate this (at least, not for a while) but I thought I'd post this
to make a record of the issue. Hope it helps at some point.
