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.

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
