Here's a success story:

1.5.18-1 failed to start the sshd service (with privilege separation)
correctly on a brand new installation on XP Home (cygrunsrv reports Win32
error 1062, but the sshd process starts nonetheless).  The latest snapshot
(1.5.19s(0.141/4/2) 20051024 12:04:00) fixes the problem -- the service
starts cleanly.  I could provide the details for the failure case if
people are interested.

If there's any real truth it's that the entire multidimensional infinity
