Aha!  Can you try running the test suite from 2.2c1 on a recent-ish
cygwin?

I'd like to include some more up to date information in the README --
currently all it says is "we don't know the current state of play wrt
cygwin on 95/98/Me."

This applies to anyone else who has access to the relavent software
too, of course.

Cheers,
M.
