Reporting that this (bloda issue?) has not shown up after I
upgraded, after 1 week of use. :-> 

The other problem that has not shown up after 1 week of use
is the tar/symbolic link, (bloda?) issue that resulted in symbolic
links randomly being untarred either OK, or as empty files w/'000'
chmod perms.

Such a joy, to have this issues gone, thanks much!  The fixed version:

  $ uname -a
  CYGWIN_NT-5.1 chsi-2ce911dqcn 1.7.13(0.260/5/3) 2012-04-05 12:43 i686 Cygwin

Unfortunately I did not note the version prior to upgrading.  Also, not
sure exactly which new version fixed the problems.

The (at work) hosts that had the problem:
  case one: XP w/resident Symatec 11.0.4000.2295 anti virus
  case two: VMWare instance of XP running "Microsoft Security Essentials"  2.0.657.0 anti virus
