Look at the timer test I just committed: 
It creates, attaches, etc, an interrupt during cyg_user_start()
and then tests that it works.  It does work fine, BTW.

n.b. Please be more careful when replying to emails - it was difficult 
to determine what you quoted from my message and what you typed (in 
fact, had I not typed it myself, I would not have been able to tell)
