Will that soon be corrected (say about next week), or, if not, where can I
get a binary of the older 1.3.1 cygwin1.dll?

I'd be happy if authentication wouldn't need a password - but I don't think
that works. Does it?

I hope that the older dll solves my problem - although I'm not sure, as a
strace shows errors on GetFileAttributesA on /bin/bash (which a few lines
below  work again) and an error 1316 on LogonUserA (? not sure).

Thanks for any help
