There is a very annoying small bug in the hamster package from 
cygwin-ports. It's a very simple fix in the python code, but I was 
thinking I would freeze the package to keep from overwriting it. I've 
had bad luck with installing from source on my linux machines, so I 
don't have high hopes for installing it from source on cygwin. I realize 
it's a bad idea to manually edit files that are under the control of the 
package manager. Freezing the package is just a workaround.
