o.O  Don't know why he can't provide a test case.  You always want a 
reproducable test case that way you can see if the issue is resolved 
properly.  The bug report is linked to applies to debian linux and not 
cygwin.  There is a small difference between the two.  Cygwin != Linux. 
Oh and that bug report is 3 years old.
