Right.  This is *not* a bug.  It's a feature.  If you read the ANNOUNCEMENT
on the ANOUNCEMENT list (copied to the Cygwin list as well), it would be
obvious to you why you're having this problem and what the solution is.

Ah.  Blindly doing *anything* and then blaming others for the results is
not a recipe for sympathy.
