In that case, the message from newer Cygwin will not be accompanied
by a recommendation to post to the mailing list. Instead it points
to some online resources about the problem.

Those resources could loudly warn the user that mailing list messages
containing references to the FAST_CWD will receive a robot reply
and not get posted (for he reason that old releases of Cygwin
encouraged users to post reports of it, which keeps happening).
