IIRC, fifo operation needs the cygwin daemon.  No sense in implementing 
mkfifo() if the fifo itself doesn't work.  Whatever happened to the 
daemon work?  conrad, oh con-rad...

As cgf asked on 11/4: "Status of cygserver?"
http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-developers/2002-11/msg00012.html
and on 11/5: "Anyone interested in checking out dgram socket problem 
(Conrad you still here?)"
http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-developers/2002-11/msg00018.html

Sadly, the first message elicited no replies; Thomas Pfaff picked up the 
second one -- but his solution didn't involve the cygserver code.

It seems that Conrad's last messages on any cygwin list were these:

"Re: cygwin_daemon merge"
http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-patches/2002-q3/msg00474.html

"cygserver usage questions"
http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-developers/2002-09/msg00196.html

and the astoundingly beautiful
"Re: So now you're a BigShot now? (clarification re. "MinGW Glib")
http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2002-09/msg01445.html

Looks like Conrad disappeared circa 9/30/02.  Nobody told me to expect 
company on my vacation; I haven't seem him around these parts...
