  There's no way you can post a reply to a digest and have it directed as a
reply to one of the individual mails in that digest.  (Well, you could, if
your mailer software allowed you to specify References: and In-Reply-To:
headers manually, and if you went to the web archive and looked up the
Msg-ID of the message you were replying to and cut and pasted it into the
headers, but that seems like a lot of trouble to me.)  A simple answer would
be to change to subscription by individual mails, or perhaps to read in
digest mode, but post replies through gmane.

  I dunno if it says so explicitly, but look at the documentation for the
--start-group and --end-group options; that makes it clear that it's a known
issue with the way ld operates.  It may well be that someone has fixed it
recently and that the version of ld on your linux box is based on a more
recent binutils release than the cygwin one.  Cygwin comes with:

dk@mace /artimi/firmware> ld -V
GNU ld version 2.15.91 20040725
  Supported emulations:
dk@mace /artimi/firmware>

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
