Yeah, they don't have a -talk list so I brought it here.  But it's not
as funny without the context; sorry 'bout that.  When you have to
explain a's not funny.  But, here's the explanation: the OP's
first message was this:

> How does one use MinGW's strip.exe? If I just type "strip mydll.dll",

> C:\MinGW\bin\strip.exe: unable to rename 'mydll.dll'; reason: File

But the title was as stated...which just stuck me as very amusing.
