	Sounds fine to me...

does the latest cygwin also have this patch as I wasn't able to
duplicate the error case with the newer cygwin (nor the patch 
you posted earlier).  I.e. was trying to make sure I got the error
w/o patch, then goes away w/patch, but in this case, either I didn't
dup the error or it was in latest version.

Hoping it is the latter.


p.s. -- some "FYI" stuff about your email:
        when i respond to one of your emails, I get two (2) 
        "To:" entries -- both to cygwin@cygwin.com.
	I think it might be because the emails from you contain
	two 'Mail-Followup-To:' lines -- see below**.

Also, I don't get your message included in a response
(because it is in a separate attachment.  Is that intentional?

Looks like 1 is added by the list, the other is maybe added by your
email client?
