Thank you for providing a fix so quickly. I have tried the new 32-bit 
snapshot and the new 64-bit cygwin package and can confirm that Poco 
threads work fine in both environments.

I've still got a little way to go with Poco: one of the test harnesses 
seg-faults, and another locks up part way through :-( I'll chase these 
down and package it when it's all working.

Thanks again for the speedy fix,
