Re: freeze-up running bash and make


Even though it would be nice if the strace output contained the version of
the Cygwin DLL you use, it doesn't (PTC, I guess).  So your report is not
exempt from attaching the output of "cygcheck -svr".

Again, "latest cygwin" is too vague to even make guesses about.  Is it
1.5.6?  Is it a snapshot?

You mean "cmd.exe"-style prompt? ;-)

Hmm, why not test it (using 'bash --login -c "cd $PWD && make"')? :-)

FWIW, there were some similar-sounding bash hang problems that were fixed
in the latest snapshot (soon to become 1.5.7).  It would be great if you
tested it and confirmed that it fixes your problem as well (or, if it
doesn't, at least provided a proper bug report).
