You know that you just have to close all Cygwin processes, rename the
Cygwin DLLs and then you can test running apps under the older DLL,
don't you?

I'm obviously running snapshots, too.  It's quite easy.  Build gvim,
replace the Cygwin DLL and see what error dialog "symbol foo could
not be found in cygwin1.dll" it comes up with.  For the non-GUI vim
it's just sigset().  I managed that by manually disabling HAVE_SIGSET
in src/auto/config.h.  Well... I *forgot* to do that for 7.0.035-1,
that's why there's 7.0.035-2, but it's still easy.
