Ok, I replaced cygwin1.dll with the Feb 23rd snapshot, and that seems to
have fixed the problem.
Only glitch I found so far is that fgets() from an empty file now sets errno
but I can work around that. (Non-empty files work fine).
Also, localtime() sets errno to ENOENT, even tho it succeeds, but I think
that's allowed ?
