Huh?  Corinna said that it has only been working correctly since 11/29.
So, you have installed a DLL from prior to that and you're still getting
problems?  This surprises you?

You are not going to see a fix unless you build cygwin from CVS or
install *today's* snapshot.  Reinstalling a version that obviously can't
retroactively have a fix is not going to solve any problems.

I'm not sure what is so difficult to understand here.

Btw, just to forgo the next question.  If you are going to use a
snapshot make sure that you install things from cygwin1-inst-*.tar.bz2.
You'll need to use the newest libcygwin.a export library if you want to
use the new inet_aton function.
