Dai,

Please keep discussions of this sort on the list instead of sending
private mail, so that they appear in the archives for others to find.
Also, please make sure your mailer honors the Reply-To: setting.

AFAICS, the only potentially private information the cygcheck output can
contain is the name of the computer, the username, and some environment
variables (including PATH).  However, if you disagree, please post the
list of information in your cygcheck output that you consider private (it
will serve as a good reference and warning, and we can refer others to it
once it's in the archives).

FWIW, the same problem was was reported more comprehensively in
<http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2003-09/msg00992.html>, so you can simply
monitor that thread for replies and/or solutions.
	Igor
