  FYI, I guess that's a fair point and a reasonable policy - albeit rather
difficult to infer from your earlier reply!  :)  I was thinking in terms of
FYI-or-no-FYI, not which was the best place for it to be posted.

  On the doing topic, the simple approach didn't work straight away; it solves
the immediate problem in, but then falls down with a
"mallinfo_dbg redefined" error, conflicting with one in dlmalloc.h.  I don't
yet know if this is a result of having included cygmalloc.h where it
previously didn't, or if this is just further bit-rot that was previously
hidden by the earlier failure.  More later, but probably not until tomorrow
now, it's getting late in this $TZ.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
