When doing my testing, I explictly stopped all cygwin processes,
copied whichever cygwin1.dll (1.7.2, .3, .4, snapshot) I wished to
test into /bin (and Windows is very good about complaining when a
cygwin process is still running when trying to overwrite the dll),
fired up a shell, ran "uname -a" to assure I had what I thought I had.
So, I am quite sure of what I was running.
