Problem with januar snapshot, xemacs-21.0 and shell-mode

My system was NT-4SP3 with cygwin-B20.1/egcs-1.1.2 and coolview dll from 19.12.98
Everything worked fine, except when mailing with Xemacs-21.0 there is this known
problem with the broken timestamp.

So I just started using the cygwin-dll from jan-15-snapshot and the timestamp
problem is gone, but now I have a problem, when I use bash from inside xemacs.
After typing M-x shell I get:


    0       0 [main] D:\bin\bash.exe 1199 fhandler_base::fork_fixup: /dev/tty1 - error 6, handle 0x0


The other problem is with telnet from inside xemacs now. This used to work. No I get

telnet.exe> Trying
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.

CYGWIN_NT-4.0 21.0 (0.8/1/1) (vzell) (tty1)

login: vzell

Process telnet-vzell background read attempted from control tty


Any hints ?? I compiled Xemacs with my old setup and now I just replaced 
the cygwin dll.
