I'm thankful that Cygwin exists and is the great product it is!

BUT, I just have an issue with GCC 4.3.  I compiled some terse
numerical (~1500 lines worth) and got one set of answers (using g++)
and I got another set of answers using MinGW with 4.5. The MinGW
results were what I expect - the same as I got using SuSE 11.4 with
g++ 4.6.  Also, the values I get using VC++ 2010.

Haven't had time to wade through the ~1500 lines of Runge-Kutta code
to find the needle-in-the-haystack.
