Um, yeah.  I already inferred that this change caused the problem.
Since I can't *duplicate* the problem (and typically, no one who has the
problem can think of a single thing to track it down), I can't fix it.
Someone posted a smaller "test case" to cygwin-apps today, so maybe that
will offer me some insight.

Which was what I'd already implied in the cygwin mailing list.  This isn't
really very useful information.
