I've updated the cygrunsrv package to 1.50-1.

Changes and fixes:

* Fixes the potential problem with service processes which don't have
  /bin in their path and use the fork() system call, reported in

* If you call -L with insufficient permissions, the annoying warning messages

    cygrunsrv: warning: OpenService failed for '<foo>': Win32 error 5
    Access is denied.

  will not show up anymore.  It will still show up if another error than
  "access is denied" occurs.

* Improved -L and -Q output.  If a service is started by a cygrunsrv
  installed in another location than the cygrunsrv instance used to
  print the -L or -Q information, it marks the service as foreign
  service.  Examples:

  -L without -V just encloses "foreign" services in parens:

    $ cygrunsrv -L

  -LV or -Q add an "Installation path" entry to the output:

    $ cygrunsrv -LV
    Service             : sshd
    Display name        : CYGWIN sshd

    Service             : foo                 (Installation path: C:\bar)
    Display name        : CYGWIN sshd
