If there are problems they would be in cygwin, not in the chroot program.  This
is evidenced by the fact that you claim that things work better in 1.3.1 over
1.3.2.  I doubt that chroot changed during that period.

Check out the cygwin web site for information on how to get the cygwin sources.

Or, wait for the next snapshot.  I believe that I've fixed the problem.
