I'm wondering if the problem I am seeing is from the same source. I find
that 'apachectl stop' no longer works since a recent cygwin update. I
can see that the PIDFILE is being written with a \r\n line ending.
'apachectl stop' then reads the file with
The following one liner illustrates a bug in sh:
$ /bin/bash -c '/bin/bash -cx '\''x=`echo hello`'\''' > @x
++ echo hello
$PID then includes the \r character, and the subsequent kill operation
fails as a result.
Is there something that changed recently that is causing this to fail
now? I'm pretty sure this worked until recently.
