It's quite confusing to find your replies all over the place because
your mailer doesn't add "In-Reply-To:" and "References:" headers.  Thanks.

I'm not sure I understand.  Are you saying you have a 1.7.0 DLL with
a build date of 2008-07-19 which works and only later DLLs show the

If so, you could easily isolate the culprit by building your own
Cygwin DLL from CVS at different states in time between 2008-07-19

Knowing that day would obviously help a lot.
