Thank you so much for your help. I'm doing this right now... Perhaps this will
fix my X11 problems (with xterm and emacs-X11) as well... Let's see...
bunzipped... moved... stopped Cygwin servers... renamed /bin/cygwin1.dll...
restarted servers... (they work)... Cygwin shell ... works... sent mail to
myself from another machine and... it WORKS! The lock file has been removed from
/var/spool/mail and the mail has been delivered. Wonderful. How about...
xterm... yepp this works too, with readline and command completion, emacs-X11,
yepp, shell process forked nicely, works.
So many problems fixed with just this one little change!

1)Go to http://cygwin.com/snapshots/
2)Download the latest cygwin1-XXX.dll.bz2 (perhaps ask Corinna for one that is
known to work. In my experience most do.)
3)Bunzip it, chmod it to executable by all and place it in /bin.
4)Kill all Cygwin processes
5)From Windows (cmd or explorer) rename the existing cygwin1.dll to something
else, and conversely rename the new cygwin1-XXX.dll to cygwin1.dll
In case of trouble reverse step 5. There is no downside risk.
