The problem reported on the Cygwin mailing list as "wierd top bug" appears
to be due to a problem in commune_send. commune_send gets stuck in a busy
loop waiting for the reply to the _SIGCOMMUNE signal when the signal is sent
to a Windows process as opposed to a Cygwin process. The Windows process
doesn't understand signals so doesn't reply to it - and commune_send gets
stuck in the busy loop at line 365. I don't have time to actually craft a
fix at the moment I'm afraid.
