It still doesn't work for me. I get
$ date | patch --dry-run
patch: **** write error : Illegal seek
It works if I recompile from sources, though. I compiled with
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr && make && strip patch.exe && \
I tried this on a recently installed Cygwin with only the Cygwin DLL
at the Test level.
