Please test latest snapshot

Hi folks,

I'd like to create a 1.7.19 Cygwin package soon.  It doesn't fix all
problems introduced in 1.7.18, but it should fix at least some of
them and, hopefully, don't make anything worse.  The SIGUSR1 problem
reported a few weeks ago is not yet fixed, though.

So I'd like to ask you to give the 2013-05-24 snapshot DLL from a try.  Here's a quick list of what has

What's new:

- Drop support for Windows 2000 and Windows XP pre-SP3.

- Add support for creating native symlinks (CYGWIN=winsymlinks:native or

- Add support for the AFS filesystem.

- New APIs: __b64_ntop, __b64_pton, arc4random, arc4random_addrandom,
  arc4random_buf, arc4random_stir, arc4random_uniform.

Bug fixes:

- getgrouplist now always creates a group list, even if it's empty.

- In fork, call CreateProcessW with the same command line as the parent
  process.  This seems to make sure the stack is created in the same
  memory location as in the parent.

- Fix a build problem resulting in Cygwin functions picking up the wrong

- Some more fixes to signal handling.
