Extracted from cygwin-1.5.25-15/winsup/cygwin/ChangeLog in the cygwin-1.5.25-15-src.tar.bz2

2008-06-12  Corinna Vinschen  <corinna...>

        * (fhandler_console::open): Set console state last.
        Only add ENABLE_PROCESSED_INPUT flag if this is the first time we open
        the console.

2008-04-17  Corinna Vinschen  <corinna...>

        * (dtable::init_std_file_from_handle): Fix pipe related test.

The cygwin source tarball is correct.  There is no guarantee that what
you see in CVS will match what is released.  The CVS trunk is where
active cygwin 1.7.x development is going on.  1.5.25 is generated on a
separate branch entirely and sees very little development.
