Hang with 20051205 snapshot while building OOo

We got some new features in the hangs with the 20051205 snapshot
when building OOo.

This trace looks a little bit different from the old versions,
see thread around <http://sourceware.org/ml/cygwin/2005-10/msg00600.html>,
but it still hangs.

We found that not only the "pwd" call sometimes hangs but also observed
a hanging "find" in a similar configuration.

Another interesting point is that attaching strace to the hanging
tcsh also cured the hang.

Should the "master" tcsh script already run under strace it is also
possible, as before, to use "ls /proc/*/fd" to cure the hang.

cygcheck log and strace files can be found here:

Hope this helps,
