What have I missed?


Changes since 1.5.11-1:

- Fix problem where stdout was closed when a thread exits.  (Christopher Faylor)

- Fix pipe problems with Windows 95.  (Bas van Gompel)

- Fix race condition in fork which occasionally caused bash to think a forked
  process had died prematurely.  (Christopher Faylor)

- Properly deal with CTRL-C while a cygwin process is in startup code.
  (Pierre Humblet)

- Increase the number of pids "held around" by cygwin to work around (but not
  solve entirely) problems where bash gets confused by pids with the same number
  in a relatively short span of time.

- Handle RTLD_DEFAULT in dlsym.  (Sam Steingold)

- Don't try to use Windows "delete on close" for files on remote shares.
  (Corinna Vinschen)

- Properly handle trailing dots in windows file names.  (Pierre Humblet)

- Make the default /cygdrive "binary mode".  (Christopher Faylor)

- Add siginterrupt declaration to signal.h.  (Christopher Faylor)

- Use proper wait value for tty reads.  (Mark Paulus)

- Properly reset SIGCHLD blocking after a spawn when there was no previous
  signal blocking.  (Christopher Faylor)

- Work hard to ensure that SYSTEMROOT environment variable is always passed
  to new processes even when it has ostensibly been deleted.  This should
  fix some strange network problems.  (Corinna Vinschen)

- Fix network slowdowns experienced by some firewall users.
  (Christopher Faylor)

- Fix minor formatting problems in cygcheck and getfacl.
  (Christopher Faylor, Bas Van Gompel)
