That and the fact that if you really, really need this to work
with the 1.5 DLL, and are processing hundreds of sfx files,
and are doing this for work where a lot of dollars are at
stake, maybe a support contract would be a good idea...

It sounds like you might want to seriously consider another
mail list member's suggestion of passing the issue up the chain
within your own firm.

I'm pretty sure you're not going to get anyone at Cygwin to
look at this problem for older versions of the DLL, if I'm
reading the tone of the responses correctly without buying a
support contract :-)
