I had the same problems first. I then entered only the directory part of the URL
and then clicked in the directory listing on the relevant file.

But I have a different problem. I downloaded the patch, compiled everything and 
got the following testresults:

Anyway I installed perl and tried compiling 

  DBI-1.08 - http://www.symbolstone.org/technology/perl/DBI/index.html

Here I got:

PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/local/bin/perl -Iblib/arch -Iblib/lib -I/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.00503/cygwin32 -I/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.00503 -e 'use Test::Harness qw(&runtests $verbose); $verbose=0; runtests @ARGV;' t/*.t

make: *** [test_dynamic] Error 2



So there seems to be a problem with my build, again this 

	Test returned status 255 (wstat 65280, 0xff00)

message.

Any hints ??


My configuration:

System:   WinNT 4.0/SP3
          Cygwin B20.1 with egcs-1.1.2
           - cygwin1.dll - ftp://ftp.franken.de/pub/win32/develop/gnuwin32/cygwin/porters/Vinschen_Corinna/B20
           - everything mounted binary,
           - CYGWIN = tty title binmode ntea

Software:  Xemacs-21.0/Cygwin - ftp://ftp.xemacs.org/pub/xemacs/xemacs-21.0/
           inetutils-1.3.2 - ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu (with patch from Sergey)


Ciao
