  By "this", do you mean "the sheer utter mind-boggling insanity of the design
of slic"?  Or something else?

  There's nothing wrong with Cygwin.  The problem is that slic was designed by
an insane gibbering maniac and coded by a team of hairy handed programmers
just when it happened to be a full moon.  The solution would be to shoot it
with a silver bullet or drive a stake through its heart.

  Seriously, though, I find it beyond the bounds of credibility to believe
that someone has actually built an IDE that has a built in debugger that
doesn't give you any means to continue the program after it hits a breakpoint.
Perhaps you have misunderstood how to operate slic?

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