Sorry for taking awhile to respond :)
I followed Igor's suggestion and looked at the cygwin-cvs archives and found
which change is affecting me.
It seems that part of the change in:
* fhandler_socket.cc (fhandler_socket::dup): On NT systems avoid
using WinSock2 socket duplication methods. Add comment.
This is what's causing me grief.
I built the 1.3.22 sources, commenting out the line:
if (! wincap.has_security ())
and my inetd apps work ok again.
I've been searching the web and archives to try and find out what's the
difference between WSADuplicateSocket and DuplicateHandle and I can't really
seem to find anything, other than an MS KB 150523 "BUG: Socket Inheritance
on Different Windows Platforms". I don't mind investigating further, but I
think I've come to a roadblock.... In the comment with the patch, it says
"Using WinSock2 methods for dup'ing sockets seem to collide with user
context switches under... some... conditions." Where can I find more
information on this user context collision problem?
I have WinXP Home SP1.
