You are right in assuming that newer DLLs should work with older
binaries but no one is willing to do tech support or debugging based on
vague problem reports. So, it isn't clear exactly what you're
expecting. If you think someone is going to take a "1.7.16"
installation and then drop a newer cygwin1.dll into it to debug your
problem then you are likely going to be disappointed - especially if you
can't even be bothered to subscribe to the mailing list.
