I would have liked to send in debugging info -- but had no idea how to
do it. If I can't run bash, then I cannot run gdb either. Since the
native (microsoft-supplied) debugging tools are so poor, and cygwin-gdb
is not accessible, debugging a bash-related problem is quite a
It's possible I suppose to use a mingw-based gdb to debug the
bash, but I don't have mingw setup on my machine.
Anyway, that's my "excuse". I'm sure that many others were in the same
boat -- they wanted to help and wanted to provide useful debugging info.
But the failure (bash) was in the critical path for obtaining that info.
