Ok.  Two reports of "instabilities".  And what does that show?

Here are the OP's original questions:

What are the reasons?

Dave theorized about one.

Will this be better with Windows 7?


Can Cygwin become "server stable"?

It depends on what is meant by "become".  If it means will there be a concerted
effort to "harden" Cygwin for a server then the answer is likely "not unless
someone pays for it."

That points back to paying Red Hat for support.
