I put a fopen, fputs and fflush at the top of service_main before anything
else happens. The times when cygrunsrv starts up, everything works and I get
my output. The times when it does not start, I get nothing (no file creater
and no output).
I also completely removed cygwin and reinstalled everything with setup 2.57.
No change: sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I wasn't expecting this
to make a difference.
