Not yet, but the fix will be in the next Cygwin release. The problem is
that the conversion from a Winsock error to the corresponding POSIX
error code is accidentally called twice in the getsockopt(SO_ERROR) case.
However, even with this fix, you might not get EHOSTUNREACH either. In
my testing, the error returned by the underlying Winsock getsockopt
function is not WSAEHOSTUNREACH, but WSAETIMEDOUT. This will be
translated into ETIMEDOUT == "Connection timed out".
Thanks for the testcase!
