Absolutely.  Igor, do you have a couple of them handy?

That's a Cygwin problem and will be fixed in 1.5.13, thanks to Pierre.

Oh boy.  Now we have *three* kills, kill from the Cygwin package, 
prockill from the procps package and gkill from the coreutils package.
Isn't that overkill?

Packaging looks good.  I've uploaded the package.  Please send an
announce posting to cygwin-announce.  Don't forget to include the
unsubscribe instructions in your announcement.

Please consider to put this package out of "test" in a couple of days.

Thanks again for taking overe maintainership.  That's worth every gold
star :-)
