Yes, sorry.  I wasn't paying as close attention to the keychain discussion
as I should have been.

However, the recent (inexplicable) report that the older keychain is
causing a crash (in bash???) makes me think that we can't wait that long
to get a new version released.  I should have made that much clearer in
my message.

I knew that Karl might be interested and was hoping that Karl might be
reading this mailing list.  Duh.  Gee.  I could actually have checked


Nope.  He isn't.  I'm bcc'ing him.

Do you really think we need to wait two weeks?  When was the last time
Hack sent email to a cygwin mailing list?  Maybe Karl would be willing
to make a new release with the understanding that Hack might want his
package back if he resurfaces again in the next two weeks?  I would just
like to elminate a potential source of cygwin mailing list complaints.
