Leafnode & Cygwin

I'm having some problems compiling leafnode (1.9.9) under Cygwin (B20).

I've got the code compiling (had to hack out a few user ID activities from
the code, add in some <getopt.h> includes, and play with the timezone
stuff), and it seems to be ok.

I run fetchnews, it starts, opens a connection to the server, and drags
down the newsgroups.  However, once it appears to complete, it crashes the
Win98 kernel dll.

I suspect the kernel crash is due to a crash within CygWin, but, it appears
to be set off by the closing down of the fetchnews code.

If I ctrl-c during the fetchnews operation, I get the same crash.

{ I have since removed this crash by removing the last fork from the
fetchnews.c source }

However, now fetchnews starts but doesn't seem to do anything, it just sits

Anyway, a long intro, to a short question, has anyone else had any
experience of compiling leafnode under Win98 (or NT) using CygWin.

Thanks for any info :)
