B20.1 status 981201

Just a couple of bugs:

I just compiled the latest winsup sources (981201), which produce a much
better cygwin dll. However, signal handling is not quite there. 

- Hitting ctrl-C a couple of times in bash causes bash to hang (using
lots of cpu), apparently waiting for some signal.

- Ctrl-C on, e.g., a long 'cat' doesn't work if tty is not set (I think).

Also, I think chmod is broken if binmode is not set.

But, nevertheless, overall a great improvement!
