look marcus don't worry yourself too much about this issue, I'm sure
in time as more people encounter this problem, or slightly different
forms of the problem begin popping up in different parts of cygwin,
more attention will be spent on resolving it. if however its totally
our mistake where by some unimaginable coincidence we are all seeing
one type of behavior due to some incorrect practice "we" are all
undertaking during the installation of cygwin, whilst "everyone" else
in the world is seeing something else, then maybe we deserve to wallow
in our own foolishness :))
I think chris at the moment is far too busy to give it the time it
requires which is fine. You know with all his development work,
patronizing and sarcasm, he must be a very busy man ;)
Its not a critical issue, its not something which will stop cygwin
from working (for now at least...)
Anywayz I would like to thank chris on behalf of people who use pthreads
with cygwin, for fixing the win32-handle problem and anyone else who
helped with verifying the problem and also adding their 2cents worth
to the discussion. I hope i haven't wasted anyone's time with this thread
about threads, but I'm sure cgf will have something to say about that.
Be one who knows what they don't know,
Instead of being one who knows not what they don't know,
Thinking they know everything about all things.
now because you say its working just fine on your system, doesn't
necessarily mean everything is all good.
No, it means that we'll have people sending email saying "It doesn't
work for me" and people speculating about how software development
should be done and people speculating on what they think the problem
you being a developer I'm sure you have a slightly different version of
cygwin and corresponding packages to other people whom just download
whatever is currently being released.
And, people assuming things that they really don't know anything about.
I wouldn't be surprised if you have some flag set or something else
modified that is allowing you to get different results which 4-5 other
supposedly competent people are not getting.
these are just some simple things to think about.
Does that patronizing attitude work for you? I find mine quite a lot of
