Argh!  And I really like CygWin, so I was hoping to learn that this is 

(Of course I could start uninstalling BLODA programs, but it's a fairly 
inconvenient solution.)

Maybe I'll just write a C program or Perl script to do the same thing.  
A Perl script won't run into the same forking issue, will it?  
(Assuming I use a Perl library to get the MD5 hash, rather than calling 
out to execute md5sum?)

Thanks guys...
