SIGURG is sort of a problem for Cygwin due to the way Winsock
handles messages. In contrast to SIGURG on U*X systems, which
is sent always when OOB messages arrive, the corresponding Winsock
FD_OOB message is only generated when async IO is used (as is on
U*X sytems with SIGIO). Unfortunately, using async IO on sockets
has some unwanted side-effects. I began to implement something
appropriate but my current solution breaks ssh so that's not going
to help very much.
The current Cygwin doesn't handle SIGURG at all and unless I can
find a practical workaround for my async IO problem or unless
somebody else contributes a patch this stae will not change that
