Re: cygcheck ... >/dev/clipboard doesn't work

This is confusing, though. I could swear that I had just used the command

$cygcheck -sv  >/dev/clipboard

yesterday, before upgrading. I pasted the output into a new document in my text editor and then saved 
it to the disk after looking at it for a while.

I am using Cygwin on: Windows 98 SE Ver 4.10 Build 2222.

I think it used to work under a version of Cygwin that was current several months ago (that I had until

Something else is different to. I was lucky enough (and with me it IS a big matter of luck when these 
things don't totally knock me down) to figure out that I was getting frequent "out of memory" 
messages from Cygwin because I was running a Windows app named "Clip-O-Matic" (as you might 
guess it is one of the umpteen million clipboard extender utilities out there; I think this was a freebie 
from the ZD site). So I'll mention it here (without expecting anybody to try to figure out why this big 
change in Cygwin's behavior) just in case some reader searches the archives later for a clue when they 
run into the same trouble.

My current Cygwin (updated yesterday):
