Problem with <> redirection to named pipe

When I try:

> mkfifo fifo
> exec 5<>fifo

I get "Device or resource busy" error message. On linux distro these
lines work well.

I made some browising through archives and encountered notices that
FIFOs implementation
in Cygwin is incomplete. Is this the cause or I miss something?
