Problem with releases since -37
Mon Jun 2 17:51:00 GMT 2003
There is only 1 cygwin1.dll anywhere on my system.
Just to clarify what happens, I do get the do you want to report this to
microsoft box and no specific error message originally. I then choose the
debug button, which is when I first see the access violation.
Anyone have any other ideas?
