You're welcome.  I suppose the other patch to write would be for CVS's
configure(.in?) file to detect which version of cygwin is being used so
that an extra second can be added to the sleep time on earlier versions
of cygwin.  I'm not promising anything, but it could be a good exercise
for me to learn about autoconf (et al)...

Me, too!  Many such patches are (probably) possible, but the hard part is
figuring out which bits of code can be removed safely.

Great!  Looking back through times.cc's history, I see that this
behavior has been in there since this file was added to CVS.  Is there
any place to see the pre-CVS history of this file?
