This quote comes from a thread that suggested cygwin had mind control

If that was really true, you'd be using a snapshot by now.

I don't know.  You didn't produce a test case and I could never
reproduce the problem.  I did take a stab at fixing it and made some
changes in that code so the error message will be different now, at

And asterisks around *try* implies that you should stop talking about it
and start *doing* it.

It is possible that this problem has been fixed by my recent attempts
to correct the dreaded "hyperthreading" problem.  However, if it hasn't
been fixed, I'm not willing to debug problems in 1.5.10.  It would be a
fruitless endeavor.  The code has changed in the last six months and,
even if the problem was tracked down, we're not going to be releasing a
new version of 1.5.10.

If you want help, either use a snapshot or CVS.
