new blood

Well, we've got some new blood in the mailing list so let me make
my periodic plea for someone to step in and beef up the cygwin test

Ideally, someone would be scanning the mailing list looking for problems
and adding test cases to catch the problems.

A case in point is the SYSTEMROOT problem which was recently unearthed
in the cygwin list.  Corinna fixed it a while ago and then I broke it
again.  It would have been nice to have a test suite entry which detected

Any volunteers for this job?  It won't be fun but it would be important.
I'll certainly grant carte blanche checkin privileges to the testsuite
for anyone who wants to do this.

FWIW, I think this would also rate an entry on the "donations" page
at the cygwin web site.
