Sorry, I wasn't too clear. It works fine for me on both SMP (VM) and
uniprocessor (again VM) on XP Home/2000.

I haven't re-built from CVS since the 10th (July) and am running with the latest
snapshot (from the 11th). I'll re-build now and try again, though.

I can send cygcheck and procps output, but my mount tables alone will flood the
list. :-)
