Eh? There's been no bug report. I was just sharing some casual
observations in response to another post.
To be clear:
The above diff command has no output. The output is supposed to be along the lines of:
--- /dev/fd/63 2012-04-11 11:44:02.283689675 -0700
+++ /dev/fd/62 2012-04-11 11:44:02.283689675 -0700

The failure is reproducible on the latest mainline distribution running
on my workstation. It also occurs exactly the same way in a very different
roll-your-own environment I have immediate access to, also on my workstation.
I suppose I could have mentioned that my box is:
CYGWIN_NT-6.1-WOW64 1.7.13(0.260/5/3) 2012-04-05 12:43 i686 unknown unknown Cygwin
That's all I know. I'm well aware that more effort will probably be required on
my part if I'm to meaningfully contribute to solving the problem. As I
stated: I don't have time to debug it any further. If you don't like that fact, I
invite you to ignore me and wait a day or two, after which I've already promised to
make some time to look into it further.
Sheesh, you win I guess: I'm now as frustrated as you apparently are.
Shall we move on or just have a big stupid flame-war? I'm game either way.
