19.4? Have I missed something? Yesterday I downloaded Sergeys
coolview.tgz to see if something happened but file size and date were
the same as with my 19.3 cygwin32b19.dll. <wonder>

I run Michael Hirmke's ncurses-4.1-win32-bin.tar.gz here and don't

running here.

That migth be because the terminfo database files are binary. What
does 'mount' say?
