Re: xsltproc segfaults after upgrading to docbook xsl stylesheetsv1.60.1

If you're frustrated, imagine how frustrated Rob is receiving all these
complaints for his efforts to make this package available to you (at any
version level).  Makes one wonder why anyone would spend their time to 
support a package.  Anyway, it's a point to ponder the next time you are
frustrated with a particular package and feel like you'd like to lash out
at someone.

Hi Jeff,

I'm waiting already for more than a month for this to happen. Needless 
to say, I'm pretty frustrated. But despite Robert claiming to take care 
of this in his initial response you cited below, no update was ever 
published. All further inquiries were silently ignored. The 
interpretation of this behaviour and consequences are up to you.

Right now, Cygwin is not usable for XML editing. I recommend switching 
over to some other *nix and a VM. Alternatively you can use the Windows 
ports of the xml libaries provided by Igor Zlatkovic. His ports are 
always up to date:
