Thanks for tracking it down but the test case is probably simpler than

$ mkfifo /tmp/fifo $ cat /tmp/fifo

That demonstrates the problem. I'll fix this ASAP.

This should be fixed in the latest snapshot:

when will this snapshot be incorporated back into cygwin, i also rely on fifo working and for my latest 1.7.x install i had to source this snapshot > to get it working.


Watch the announce list when you're looking for new releases.  In your case,
there was a release the next day with the fix.  There's also been another
release since then.
