The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* cygutils-1.4.16-8
* cygutils-extra-1.4.16-8
* cygutils-x11-1.4.16-8

This update fixes a couple issues with getclip and putclip, namely:
1) Mistakenly assuming charset is always UTF-8,
2) Opening and closing the clipboard multiple times (putclip only),
   sometimes causing ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED.
Thanks to Takashi Yano for bug reports with testcases, and especially
the patches!

This update also provides a new feature: robust copy/paste between
32-bit and 64-bit Cygwin environments, provided both are running
3.3.0 (Test) or higher.

NB. Since this is a Test release, you'll have to specifically select
this version from the setup*.exe Version dropdown to install it.  If
there are no issues reported, in a couple weeks this version will be
promoted for automatic updating on your system.
