Newest cygwin snapshot has /proc/<pid>/cmdline

Try to start "nice make" in one console and "top" in another one. Everything
freezes and "top" consumes all the CPU time:-( I think the problem is in the
following loop in _pinfo::commune_send():


  while ((isalive = alive ()))
    if (myself->hello_pid <= 0)
      break;
    else
      Sleep (0);

Changing Sleep(0) to Sleep(10) helps a little bit, but that's not a
solution...
