Hello all,

I am running Cygwin DLL 1.7.11-1 and the bash command
"cat < <(echo 1234)" (not very profound, ok) works fine on
my Win7-64 box.

Now I installed the same Cygwin release on an older PC
running WinXP: the above command does not execute
properly and breaks with the error message
"bash: /dev/fd/62: No such file or directory".

Any explanation?
Anything I can do make it work?
Thanks a lot in advance for any answer.

Best regards,
Sven Severus
