Right, but the point I had hoped to help clarify with my earlier comments,
since it bit me when first moving to the net release, is that the default
for stdin/stdout/stderr in the net release changed (versus b20.1) to
textmode and not binmode.  So if you don't have CYGWIN set to anything, the
standard handles are textmode in the net releases.

Which is ok - just something I thought helpful to note in the previous
thread about CYGWIN.
