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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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?
