Just updated to latest CYGWIN in Windows XP. After running ssh-agent, the command prompt
window that it ran in will hang on "exit". If the window is forcibly killed, it will
take the ssh-agent down with it. If the ssh-agent is forcibly killed, the "exiting"
window will close. Previous versions of ssh-agent in cygwin turned into a background
process. Don't know if this is a ssh-agent problem or a generic forking problem.
