Changes since -28:

- Create default cygdrive prefix as case-insensitive.

Bugfixes since -28:

- Fix a bug in handling SIGPIPE on pipes.

- Fix a bug in POSIX message queue handling which disallowed to create
  more than one message queue at a time.

- Fix a bug in permission settings introduced with -27.  Missing
  parenthesis result in users not being able to chmod files they just
  created.  :-(

- Fix a bug in symlink handling which can result in not being able to
  stat() certain files locked by the OS.

- Several bugfixes in mkpasswd/mkgroup.

I also uploaded a new base-cygwin package which makes sure that
/dev/shm and /dev/mqueue are always created or changed to 01777
