I shan't delve into the intuitiveness of list naming here. There is a
clear description of what each list is about, and your message does not
conform to the description of <cygwin-apps at cygwin dot com>. To quote:
cygwin-apps: a subscriber-only list for discussing packaging issues
regarding applications that are distributed with the Cygwin DLL. If you
are maintaining or volunteering to maintain one of the packages that is
distributed with the Cygwin net releases you should be subscribed to this
list. This list is intended for discussing solutions. It is not (with
one exception) for bug reports, "it would be nice", or "how do I" type of
musings. Use the main cygwin mailing list for that.
The keywords in the above are "packaging issues", and "it is not for bug
reports". What you've described is not a packaging issue. It is a bug
report. Thus it belongs on the main cygwin list.
